Looking

– for erudite thought –

While eager to find
Endures be sought,
Said sanguine time 
For erudite thought, 
Abides one inclined
By inspired epoque, 
Wants trust defined
Composed as ought,
Optimistic assigned 
Tho may’ve sought,
To acquire consign 
Decidedly brought,
Save deviate minds
Shall suppress not,
Hide merit in kind
Held as calculus lot,
Seek Einstein design!

“ Idle Wade ” ~ to escape pathos ~

Ye squander time

Lacking the know

Of rapid decline,

Or how long to go

Before its consign,

Will find abuse

Hence so resign,                                                           

From inert pursuit

Of animate minds,

Whose idle wade

Be comatose blind,

In a pathos shade

Of life’s meagre time!
