Life sometimes wants to be a dictator
It can twirl and whirl without one on hold of the steer
Frantically, one may apply the brake, but guess what, the brake’s an accelerator
‘Enough, let’s kowtow to the ride’

Life is living IT, or wait, is living it life?
Inaccessibility accentuates and puff, there flies one’s meagre hope
Frightfully persuasive comes to deprive
Extempore. Humph! A common one ‘cos in writing this that is how one copes
