This Life On Stage

Mornings reprogrammed
Damn the romance
I'll eat sweet experience
Rather than squeeze through weariness
The message sent
Though I doubt it was cleverly penned
No regret
Hope depends instead on breathe
Exerted breathe
After conducting experiments
Of joy and expression nets
Delighting in recompense
Producing some cents
Investing in sense
Directing your comet
To cushion our pockets
And relent for payment
For choices made
Here plays
This life on stage
