Up Again

Mouse clicking in an endless repetition.
A rush of heat amid the admonitions.
Hurry up and get it done.
Never stop to ask the reason why.
Win or lose, just keep it running on.
Ready then? Let's start it up again.

Deadlines set and met and changed.
Rearranging everything for nothing
much at all. Numbers that were
never more than counted fantasies.
Calculate, repopulate, and add
them up again.

When was it that the meaning
lost its hold within our feelings?
Cold and calculating never
heated up a heart. Theories
come and go and change.
Without a promise like the rain,
to nurture living things within
their true and utter need.

Mouse clicking in an endless repetition.
A rush of heat amid the admonitions.
Hurry up and get it done.
Never stop to ask the reason why.
Win or lose, just keep it running on.
Ready then? Let's start it up again...
