Futility

I must say this
being human
is an abyss
where acumen
helps just so much
Even with such
we all will fall

Inspired by the 16 March 2021 prompt “This being human is” on the “dVerse – Poets Pub” site, though not following the direction to start the poem with the prompt. (Well, it doesn’t fit within the construct of my syllable count. 🙂)

A Killer Thought

As a chancer
I’m assumin’
Not a dancer
must be human
I don’t care
if it’s a bear
The song ain’t wrong

For those who don’t know the song reference, you can watch it here (I apologize). To be honest, I’ve never actually listened to or read the words of this song because I can’t get past the refrain, so I don’t know what it is about 🙂:
