Not Trying


The compliment of not even trying is only 
bent to favour vying with what is a weaker 
evil intent - the sole demon you managed 
to gentle so far, at least it seems mollified 
and there is no dissenting the decision to 
do nothing about the ‘urgent’ situation we 
are supposed to confront, manage, tame 
and even lead into the arena for judging 

Can’t be in two places at once you claim; 
past feats where who you were mattered 
it may have seemed possible, maybe; bet 
there is no-one here to observe, however; 
and if there were we’d still be crowed into 
the same factions we’re dying to leave
