OctPoWriMo 7

Slipping into a kind of exhausted 
routine not unlike the one you did not
miss when you had the time to do nothing
means there is less time to complain how much
you wish everyone who has a home would
just stay there not only to rid the world
of pathogens but maybe take some time
to figure out if you should contribute
to the growing gridlock which is a fact
of life as it was and probably will
be for an as yet undetermined time
at this rate non renewable fuels will
be exhausted before we figure out
what else there is to burn on our way out
