We wish for simplicity then get bored and stir things up again.

The older I get, the calmer my urge to “stir things up”. Don’t know if that’s a good sign or a bad one. 😆 It does seem to be human nature though…

Well that’s a relief at least. 😉
Of course it depends on what one means by stirring things up. 😉
Or “human” or “nature”.
Could be someone
Designated a “world leader”
Or a “captain of industry”
Or just some unwitting contributor
To one in a million on line forums
But on a sudden
That within me throbs and swells
And lifts its eyes to heaven
And bursts its banks
And flows down untrammelled
To see how they draw pleasure
From the chance to cause another pain
With their stiff necks
Their red eyes
And the rightness alcohol lends
And again I am drawn to reflect
Where boundaries can ever be meaningfully drawn
To notions like “nature”
Indeed! Maybe in some distant future human nature will have evolved. Spiritually.
While humanity seems to appear at present to constitute – shall we say – a mixed bag.
That should (and now does) read mixed bag rather than mixed bad. 😳
“mixed bad” fits our current administration over here. 😱😵 But yes, mixed bag in a wider context. 😊
