Repetition - Day Day Defeats - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Day day repeats, night empties night
Around the clock as Time and Chance
Year in year out the seasons’ dance
Drive on un[sc]rolling life’s swift flight,
All sense withdraw from man’s poor plight.
Yin, Yang expand, retreat, advance,
Repeat 'I will, I won’t' romance.
Enigma's spins from black to white,
Path insight incites? wayward kite?
Extremes unite, Death’s peace supplants
All haste, all waste - speed, prance, sloth, trance.
The verdict’s rendered, all alike
Sink to sleep as night reaps light
until day [y]earned [c]locks out [sp]urned night.
