Life’s not always better when lived within a bubble.
Boring regularity might be traded for trouble
by some who find that firewalls just hold in what is boring.
They prefer the heat of flames—the crackling and the roaring.
They do not stress the cognitive. The sensual’s what rules.
They consider rational thinkers as the fools.
They do not heed the laws of men nor mind the dull world’s censure.
They behold the world as one long and wild adventure.
It takes all types to fill the world—some to become the members
who put out all the fires while the others stir the embers.
Prompt words today were firewall, behold, traded for trouble and cognitive.
Well written! There really have been all kinds of folks in our society and I guess we can be thankful for all those people who weren’t content with “things as they are” and agitated for improvements.
