frybread sonnet #001: KEEP WAITING FOR NEVER

Keep waiting for never - promises of change are made
(at least ev'ry four years) to maintain direction
towards oblivion; not obvious waylaid
chaos destroying order at intersection
of progress and hopes, seen as civilized rubble,
but a more introspective oblivion, where
one learns to make self secondary, not trouble
the routine or mundane with feelings life's unfair.
Keep waiting for never, utopia rising
collectively through realization we've built wrong
structure upon philosophic faults, devising
engineered calculations believed to be strong
but just moving along - life is not forever;
and yet I sit still... idling... waiting for never.
