Bored, Blind, and Light

There's a man sitting in a warm, black chair
And he knows not what to do
For all the night is stale as cheap perfume
The darkness molests all the room
There must be livelihood, but where?
Just a man with nothing to do

There's a light illuminating faces
Yet in their life, they blind themselves
It is a bit, to be a light without sight
You find yourself as bored upright
That slaves away when in these places
Just a light, can't find themselves

I'm gonna go bow down in the dust now....and polish your shoes...

there is blindness in both the darkness and in the light. When all is consumed by both nothing else can be seen.
Michael this is one of your best. I love the comparison, the similies, the methaphors. Well done!

Should that be, 'it is a bitch' to be a light without sight Michael? I do agree that man must have gainful employment in life or suffer in the darkness with nothing to do. Man especially needs to work or they get into all sorts of trouble from my experience. Livelihood I believe is spelt this way. I hope your studies are going well, I am sure you will earn a fine living one day.

Interesting title! My husband used to say that our kids could be bored for the country or chairman of the bored, either way, a bored kid or adult is an accident waiting to happen.

Get busy,
