Damn Thing

Deprived of time,
Hindered by miles
,
Faced with do-nots rhyme

How it conquered thy being,
There’s no way of telling

Careless
If lizards are eavesdropping;
Careful
If mice are screeching,
Relentless in digging

Perhaps
This,
That
Damn thing
Must be a wonderful thing

Brown eyes
Are lightening;
White enamels
Are sparkling
Evincing harmony within

Perhaps
This,
That
Damn thing
Is truly a wonderful thing.
