what are the rules of the game ?

what are the rules of the game ?

we play and flatter our way
into situations
friends ?

and then
the blood is splattered
upon the walls
like it never really did matter
when it is time
for that ship to leave
the port of call

people wanting
to sail to new lands
hoping for ways out
of what is all too common
those everyday doldrums
a life of ho hums . . .

here we go again
looking for a new friend

never really admitting to our selves
that true committing
is something we only dream about
and we tell ourselves
we deserve this
and we do !

it seems to me
and i may be wrong
that the song we hear
is but that
tear filled one
angst spilled one
a fearful one
that our Sun
will never rise
to kiss the eyes
of that longing
so we acquiesce
don’t we

but i have standards
let me see
what are they
today for me ?
what are the rules of the game ?
