We Are Back Again

We Are Back Again

We are back at where we set off
After circling round and round
Like an eagle preying over nothing.

We were the mad people
Who carried bags and baggage
Thinking they were going somewhere
Only to go nowhere.

We are where we began the erstwhile journey
Legs that pained
Headaches that wouldn’t go
Raiments so dirty
Were goodies we brought.

We are back again at where we set off
After circling round and round
Like an eagle preying over nothing.

  1. this looks exactly like one of my poems! I love the images created of eagle preying on nothing and of a madman going nowhere. Good one. i cant criticize this effectively because it looks like how i write.
