The Race

The dilapidated Dream created blurry ambition,

losing focus on the trophy from this stagnant position.

Waxen idols coveted bravely by the fickle,

provoke sable knights forever riding for the civil.

Abstinent intelligence guides the visionless procession,

powerless pawns in the battle for artificial compensation.

The discrete academic trains daily for the rivalry,

baring arms of rationality aimed intently at stupidity.

But for him there is no competition,

for unity has to be the vision – even if it reads like senseless fiction.

To finish is to comprehend incomparable diversity,

recognition of humanity will be your legacy – the supreme priceless bounty.
