A Day At the Agora


Never would I enjoy
A day at the agora
Deafening is the noise
A torture and dilemma.

Tumultuous blaring sounds
Of centralized systems,
As people walk around
Stress can be seen in them.

I wonder if I could shop
In such a rowdy confusion!
That system needs a chop
To send it to oblivion.

I'd remedy it with ear plugs
Perhaps appear quite trendy,
And when I pay look smug
At the shouting sales lady.

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
