The Breeze Of Intellect

The breeze of right intellect
Winds swiftly and blind
The capture
The conquer
Shows no one unkind

Though some are the sensitive
With vision of breath
Their palpable hopefulness
Stands wide in its breadth

But the backsliding fortunate
Shifting from shame
Warms the sad sallow shadow
So skewing his name

And the onset of atrophy
Renders thought without poise
Tangible negligence
Useless by choice

While deafly and dumbly
The skin prickles form
Bright wind laughs through lyrics
At such wastefulness born

Escaping from harmlessness
Drunken in doubt
A stale mediocrity
Breeds mind numbing drought

Fool of the could have been
Rationing spoil
Squandering sentiment
Defeated in toil
