Only outlet to bid adieu?
Malcontent’s frustration, the gift that keeps giving
What respite for the tortured yeti?
Anger directed at negative imbecilic cankers of one score and ten summers
Who’ve conspired with the carcinogenic canker of seven winters
With objective of diminishing yeti’s spirit; his melancholy to nurture.
Chewy’s enduring misfortune manifest a dwindling faith
Notions of future fortunes illuminated plummet despairingly
Witnesses half full crystal glass morphing to semi empty beaker
Watches Damocles’ pristine dual sabres maintain menace above brood’s pates
Ambiguity reins at spousal & pater’s wellbeing, likewise future employ
Imperceptible support, enforced celibacy their burdensome accomplices.
Solitary outlet have one or three more for the road
Yeti prefers semi empty beaker to barren chalice
Allowing sole avenue diversion from existential misery
Realising the folly of epiphanies of negativism
Anger & bitterness, two are bed-fellows he desires not to embrace
His only wish, continuance of that solitary outlet.
