An app for that

an app can solve every problem..can it?

Do you have an app

To quell the thousand thoughts

Thronging on my mind’s shores?

To taser the countless desires

Threatening to burn me up?

To vaporize the numberless fears

That are crippling me with

Their vice like grip?

Do you have an app for that?

Animal

Have we outgrown our animal nature…

There was a time

When the animal

Was buried

Deep within the man.

Civilized nature meant

That the veil was thick.

One would have to dig

Really deep before

The animal reared

It’s ugly head.

This, alas ,

Is the age of speed.

And everything is done

In double quick time.

And so it feels

That the veneer

Has grown really thin.

You just need

To scratch the surface now

And the animal comes

Roaring out.
