Engineered Stumbling Blocks

In dewy-eyed pursuit of the improbable dream
crossing over the joining bridge
standing statuesque
poised at the entrance to Paradise

Manipulating fact & fancy
based on a whim & a whisker
neutral in the fury of chance & choice
laborious & draining on the ego

When all is fashioned in black & white
revealing comely future endowments
would you not choose to follow
a finely choreographed chain of events?

My home is my fortress with all its comforts
an impregnable wall of defense
an ice palace on a chilly night
to be warmed in the light of a brighter day
