Over Stimulated - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Down the rising escalator
Defying the rising tide
Disregarding moving steps
Increasing a widening stride

Look out people who are below
Move to the side or be displaced
Unyielding momentum causes concern
He acts as though he is being chased

Where is the beast with sharp claws?
Is it shortening the distance between
Hunger and it’s fleshy meal?
Surprisingly… the predator is unseen

Shoppers in the mall are paralyzed
Shocked by the unbelievable scene
As the sprinter makes it to the line…
Craving another cup of hot caffeine

    Then there's the pair
    Lingering for a moment to stare
    At the madness in which they play
    With no intent to move out of the way.

    Walkers out on their daily jaunt
    With no care of others about
    Who actually pay
    For the presence every day.

    So they stroll merrily along
    Maybe dancing to a different song
    But when it's over the Post will say
    They forgot to got out of the way.
