As The Geezer Says

 
 
As the ancient geezer says, thine’s
not to reason why, give a toss, or
even try – bucket-loads of vagrant
shit passed down this way in quest
of legendary levity; all murmured
breath much less a vocal change:
so many earnest agonies behesting
fractal fallacy as honest jest
 
And so I sit in hope of hearing it,
‘the penny’ drop expectantly with
ears ablaze, knees-betwixt arcane
in hopes and dreams, a metaphor
you couldn’t see in semaphore
and yet accept impassively
