In a puzzle of circles and squares.

I'm a trapezoid.

The Great Spirit is a rock,

That fills the void.


I wander, I seek.

Stand for the meek, the weak,

And now –

I can't even speak.


I try till I cry.

I stand till I'm bent.

I awake and dream,

Until I'm spent.


I don't plead,

For what I need.

Why in a garden of roses,

Am I merely stink-weed?


Can the rock continue,

To fill the void?

And will I eternally be,

The trapezoid?

It’s a world of trade.

It’s all a charade.

Am I the epi-center?

In what currency am I paid?


Always smoke and mirrors.

Always the illusion.

Indulgence, seclusion,

Permeating confusion.


Wealth for health.

Friend for friends.

Criticize, ostracize,

Loose and bitter ends.


Turn a page. Turn a key.

Turn the wheel.

Turn you. Turn me.

Seal the deal.


~Micky Dee~
