Irascible, Irreplaceable Me

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


I roam my world with unquenchable thirst,

for knowledge and understanding my brain to burst.

Filled with notions and ideologies found,

unparalleled delving from head to ground.


Never suffer fools nor smite them either,

they surround me still my patience rivalled.

And still my questioning sees no bounds,

understand them too my will resounds.


But the greatest quest of all is me,

to know what make me want to see,

the complexities of human mind,

and actions made my axe to grind.


For I am singularly obtuse and wanting,

because knowledge has not helped my thinking.

Although my thoughts are sound in heart,

my confusion with man is set apart.


For all I see I wish I hadn’t,

the darkest wills still creating havoc.

The world a place of infinite potential,

still lost in greed and negative attention.


So I end up just a cranky old man,

with a lonely page and pen in hand.

Dismissing all the wrongs in life,

to find beauty and love above the strife.
