very nice I really like those last two lines.
That last line sounds like a nail in the coffin.
The last line is a killer.
Often we know not what we do....
Love the metaphor with planets....we're missing the points - prison ship in nowhere - one line poem by itself...
Profoundly at variance with your usual, and very good indeed. I too like your last line.
That first bit didn't read right - your usual is good too!
Whenever I enter the shopping centre in Weston Super Mare (which god knows is depressing in itself they play 'Road To Nowhere' (Talking Heads) )..you have penned a far weightier and wiser version..although trinkets..hmm..can be fun and they do sparkle near heat..
Not at all like your usual. We do seem to spend a lifetime mostly oblivious to what is truly important.Elizabeth
The last line .... wow ... that struck hard !!!
I'm afraid that many are on a prison ship to nowhere...unwittingly...
'Tis fate, I'm sure. You're fated to be a great poet!
Old Egg, I was just talking to a friend today about the trips to Mars, and I wonder why? Who wants to do? This poem brought that subject to mind profoundly.Pamela
¨*who wants to do that*
Strong piece, OE. I love the imagery, and your subject. a prison ship to nowhere. I agree.
This is SO GOOD!
