Becoming 12

It’s true what they say:
Happiness is fleeting,
And the reaper comes for all things.
A smile, an orgasm, a friend, a marriage,
All bounded by their ends.
Appalling and inescapable.
We are all prisoners,
And the guards sadistic and dull.
But it’s true also
That to neglect ones duty
To attempt to escape
Is to give up being
Human, and to die before
Death.
