Is only my World warped?

My Warpy World (2002)

1.   I need to burn off my excess energy,

That stuff I used to have in abundance in my youth.

I burned it bending on desks,

Reading and learning.

About our warped literatures and histories,

 

Warped theories,

Warped philosophies,

Of a warped world we created.

 

2.   I now need to stretch time in my old age.

I don’t want time to fly by:

I am supposed to be scared

Of the imminent end.

 

No, I have to work double shifts to make ends meet.

I need to work harder to fulfill

Newly discovered dreams.

What is left in the behaviors of our World to uplift our morale?

Note: A re-edit of my poem “My Warpy World (2002)”

I don’t want time to fly by in a blink:

I am supposed to be scared

Of the imminent end.

 

No, I have to work double shifts to make ends meet.

I need to work harder to fulfil

Newly discovered dreams.
