Footprints in the Windsm # 1473–“Do everything”

Footprints in the Windsm # 1473

Let me say to you, sir or ma’am
this thing that you don’t like
the beeps and bustle all about
the groans all within
knowing not what we mean
when on and on we say “do everything”
the way the doctors treat on and on
and never let us rest
this thing I see you do not like
is no one’s doing but your very own
the culture you with us have cultivated
all around is torture, torture
and no where near a gentle hand
nor ear to hear our life complete
it’s doing is ours—yours and mine
and yours again—
and so too its possible undoing—shall we?
nor ear to hear our life complete
our life complete—

Please pass it on.
