This week’s Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 142 offered the prompts ‘Character and Wild’.. with our choice of synonyms. I have selected ‘Protagonist and Primitive‘ in a double etheree.
Double Etheree – Devolution by Sally Cronin
by life’s extremes,
strategies to ensure
survival of the fittest.
Those skills seemed to have disappeared
within our modern society,
and our reliance on technology.
Sometimes I feel like a protagonist
in a farcical soap opera,
written by a manic robot
without the human input
to add the common sense,
fused with emotion,
that will prevent
