Hiding debonair details;
What it’s like to actually experience
Supposedly, it’s supposed to pay off
I highly doubt that –
Considering patience is required,
And I’m six-seconds away from being a patient.
Admittedly I do admire,
That Cheshire Cat smile,
While silently contemplating
How to concoct a believable lie.
Both a conflict of my principles,
& conflict of self-interest;
Trying to preserve what sanity is left
Pickled in mason jars.
