Chasing Dragons

This is it

this is all we’ve got

yet we spend our lives

chasing dragons

and deities

sipping holy water

while forced down

on our knees

praying for salvation

suffering spiritual starvation

invisible carrots dangle

as preacher men wrangle


and Lincoln’s

for raffle tickets

to an idea.

The sales pitch is easy

when it’s shrouded in fear

but life is your ship

and its you who should steer
