“ The Consequence ” ~ of forgetfulness ~

You come to believe

Thru serene control,

Had then so achieved

A mind now set bold,

Held made concede

Put memory on hold,

Save too little known

Of significance told,

When recall has flown

To a mindless absent,

Tho spirit may mourn

Fickle fate will consent,   

With memory conform

To consequence bent,

Of forgetfulness shorn!

“ Man Without ” ~ presence of mind ~

It matters naught

What matter lies

In mindless man,

So wait we skeptics

For presence of mind

Of another mankind,

Than Orwell’s

Big brother,

Watching we others

Turn cynical fodder,

Awaiting risk’s druthers

Save that of held thrall,

Or googling snoop irresponsible!
