Light at the end of the … bubble

Voices… distant, who gives a buck.
Silver tools crying, trying their luck.
Hamsters are running on tiny wheels.
Malfunctioning giants on distant hills.

Oil is dripping and though hope is lost,
one crazy rodent sails the frost.
This can't be real, one micro-spark?
Flames are blazing, join the ark!



Makes me think that ...

Life can often be a balance of optimism and pessimism. Sometimes in a working life,  these two can each be more intense and the balance can be more delicate.
