Oh So Cold

I’m reminded time & again
to try to adapt
& apply the past to the future
in a world where I don’t easily fit
my skills unworthy of notice
left as a relic unworthy of mention
overshadowed by the aging process
a victim of overspent jest
a mental case suitable for closer study
useless without a purpose to serve
a dummy without a master
to give me voice & pull my strings
with a penchant for grand adventure
plying myself with intoxicants
to eke out some sense
from the shameless horde
