Of Heroes & Villains

Untoward longing for things I’ll never have
satisfies a need to explore the unknown
a mother hen protecting her brood
royally screwed & unseemly crude
dining with the out-to-lunch bunch
a hero to none but myself

The boat has sailed without me onboard
& the captain would say it’s for the best
as the currents pulled it too far off course
forevermore doomed to be lost at sea
without a hope of salvation
at the mercy of the Devil’s Triangle
