Response to Inaction

How can one justify an action
With the sole purpose of satisfaction
What honorable life we may defy
Whittling away hours in the pursuit of a lie
Saddled with a building pressure deferred
We succumb, dwelling in our vice preferred
Nature just, truth blind, and trust too kind
We passively allow this to repeat
When the weight on one man’s mind
Is enough to crush his feet


I used a random word generator for all posts this week. See below.
The tool spat out five at a time. You can find them in bold within the post.

  1. Excellent use of the sculptor Gustav Herold – Atlas Statue, above Central Station in Frankfurt Germany. Great word play, especially in association with such a strong image “the weight on one man’s mind is enough to crush his feet”.

    1. Thank you.
      I love that sculpture. I didn’t expect anyone to pick it.
      When I had the words from the generator that sentence jumped out. The rest was just finding a way of getting to it.
      Thanks for the great comment.
