Chapter 26
A Quandary

by Marshal Gebbie

A Quandary,
How inconsequence can change us
A comment, made in passing, without thought,
Can bring down mighty empires and associations
And render good relationships as nought.

A Quandary,
How we pick up bad impressions
And label them with values as we go
Until the crass delusions of a lifetime
Are worn as camouflage to what we know.

A Quandary,
How we founder in the hindsight
Of guaging how our brothers measure up,
When flavoured by our own apparent short fall
And tasted in our own judgmental cup.

A Quandary,
How a life slips through the fingers
Preoccupied with details of the way
We watch the fool performance of the others
And lose our true perspective to the grave.

This Quandary,
When a rain storm clouds the morning
Then suddenly a bright sunbeam interferes,
It's like quandary's building worlds of complication
Which dissipate when rationale reappears.

Pondering issues lightly...
