Failsafe Is Self-Delusion Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Failsafe Is Self-Delusion



Deny temptations of soft ride,
Ease superficial, risks unquantified,
Choosing safe way, straight road comfort fed,
Idea[l]s mediocre are poor guide,
Deride free choice, autonomy, self pride,
Exchanging fad, conformity, for bread.

Despise stop-gap solutions qualified
Everywhere as failsafe when, allied,
Complacency and status found in bed,
Incestuous are chosen for free ride,
Denigrating options for scope wide,
Endure more than participate, choice dread.
reams sacrificed to mirage fears short-sighted
turn self-prophetic, lead to future blighted.
