A Dose of That

No Time for Recreation
In the unforgiving sense
No gasping for repeals
In the circus of repented ideals

Vials of this and doses of that
Every solution
Won’t provide you
With what you’re looking for

Archaic, convenient
Jagged, restored
Are the songs sung while you sleep it off,
Filling your surroundings
With Gospels of prosody,

Stories have been told
Passed from elders to kin,
Retold in book form
And traditions lose their historical sense

A slight alteration to the text
May destroy or may surprise
Depends upon the context of the consequence
