AN ORIGINAL ABOUT LACK OF ORIGINALITY

Standard

By Tom H. Brooks 3

 

There is simply

nothing left to say…

it’s all been said before

one way or another…

 

Originality has been diminished.

 

The world grows

tiresome and repetitive

same old love stories

thrillers

commercials

murder mysteries

scandals

AGAIN with the advertising

comedies

‘masterpieces’ of philosophical angst

said and done

said and done

said and done

solve your problems

with a gun…

“ain’t no sunshine, when it’s gone…”

but we try

I try

to think of new ways

to express

what many of us are feeling…

It’s not easy

but I can’t help it

so I continue scribbling anyway

trying to clarify

or understand

or fucking something

ANYTHING

that will bring some semblance

of form

to this formless blob of chaos

into which we were born…

to somehow mold it

into something

that is my own

injected with sublime new meaning.

 

The sun continues

its routine arc

across the blue dome of sky

leaving me no answers

and giving me only sunshine,

but that counts too….
