Rotated - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The one chasing
Like a captor after prey...
Is only in it for the hunt,
Like one on the prowl...
Seeking to exhaust a fresh stunt,
Used to amuse
And display in play.
Although obvious and tired,
Are tactics employed...
No one can tell the one hunting,
Actions rotated are actions that annoy.

    Oh people, and their stupid annoying and obvious games...makes one wonder why any grown up civilized person would do such a thing. Have they no life at all? Brillant as usual! Got your mind going full stream tonight!
    Best wishes, Theo
