Clueless in Oxford

There are times in our lives
we seem busy as a bee hive;
Others we seldom strive
Or care even to thrive
– find a cause to ev’n be alive

What causes the difference?
…Some to live in overt elegance
While others strife in maleficence?
Some strive for healing and unity;
Others would care to disallow impunity.

Reflect and Ponder if you will;
For me, it serves to send a chill.
Some would regard “time is to kill”;
Others just slip away to take a sleeping pill.
Either way, you won’t get your “thrill”.

Have you become as I – to this point, clueless?
…would walk about this earth, shoeless?
Such thoughts and acts care to be foolish,
Complacency – consider it be the cruelest;
Apathy – a wraith would be your duelist!

Dealing with contradictions would like unto sedition,
Never the less, appears to be our predilection!
May even be our untoward predisposition
Most like unto our desolate living conditions
Our bane – this despicable, unholy contradiction!
