Ah Thomas . . .
When nothing has meaning . . .
Itís easy to see
The world at large
As very small . . .

With no gods in the clouds
The mountains or stars not metaphors
You struggle for order
And find only void
For a cause

Yet for all your despair
In iambic pentameter
Imbued with ennui and pedant misery
You still cling to the rail on this balcony
And look both ways on a road . . .

Where any rabbit or squirrel
Seems to know far better than you
What a miracle it is
That we are

You seem to get better by the hour!  I had to look up Aboulia in the dictionary (loss of will power, for those who also don't know).  Ah, what comfort you bring to all Doubting Thomases.

I love the whole poem, but that last stanza is the most Wow!
