234 – Excuses

Their flocks
Are vast,
Their armies
Numerous.

They hide
Within every
Nook and cranny
Of our apathy.

Ready to pop
Like last-ditch tricks
From some superhero’s
Utility belt.

Flowing incessantly,
In a vast river
Of almost-truths
And half-baked reasons.

So natural
And easy
Sometimes even we forget,
And start believing them.
