The Dilemma

Temptation and sorrow

Have marred many a talented tomorrow

Life s Paradox is that to truly enjoy it

you have to abstain from its pleasures

Touch but don’t grab

Sniff but don’t smell

Taste but don’t swallow

Bite but don’t eat

Be excited only with the boundaries

Of your cubicle, your ears, your fingers

It is a game and we don’t know who is playing us

But we play on, soldier on, shoulder on

Accept our limitations and our weakness with grace

Our bias our prejudices our preoccupation with taste

Instant gratification leads to distant falls

Nature burns for adequately thermo-stated halls

And we burn for our illusions

Preoccupied as we are with silly delusions

Of our own unique irreplacability

Look Ma, Ah can now manipulate my DNA

Mother laughs, still a child.

Will blunder and fall, before it learns to walk for a while.
