Simplicity – Written Friday 9th April 2021 (Aged 46)

Simplicity

people fall prey
to the sexy lure of simplicity
it,
fucks with their prejudices
and leaves them wanting more
simplicity,
is there to be adored
when,
you live in a world
where responsibility crushes –
everything you do
then simplicity will seek you out
and turn the false into something true

people fall prey
to the sexy lure of simplicity
it,
absolutely takes them
it wines and dines-
all of their fear
and the fog of their absolute ignorance
miraculously becomes clear
when,
you live in a word
that appears to confirm you are right
and you happily suck on your privilege
then simplicity produces a golden light




James Garratt – Friday 9th April 2021
