Who Are We Kidding Anyway?: A Satirical Poem

Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

It's all a passing game, and we treat it as an eternal deal

this life and all players including bluffers and losers

is nothing much more than a temporary time steal

with a given life and with no manual for users.


That came later with bunch of smart asses providing instructions

but truth be told, most of those rules were such a pile of crap

that even teachers did their best to break them in actions

and as for gods, they are still taking their deserved nap.


Everything is a Carnival, a Mardi Gras in their serious version

with so many of us qualifying for a good psychiatrist's clients

and I don't call the whole culture market "intellect's perversion"

just because of my respect for a bunch of true human giants.


And yes, there are those of anonymous but great kind

you know whom I mean, folks like you and me

still trying to make better use of our mind

and working on setting ourselves free.


So, let go, if you can, of all glamorous meaning of life

for even those gods high above must only be kidding

by making us believe in all this hardships and strife

while the way we act means they are succeeding.
