Drones

Day sixteen of NaPoWriMo. Today’s challenge gets a little technical. When you are asked to write about something, you can select a style that suits you. When the challenge is a style, I feel at a loss of inspiration. To write a terzanelle. I do vaguely remember writing a terza rima in one of the earlier NaPoWriMos.

Living day to day without any aim,
Time consumed by meaningless distractions.
Why can’t we wake up and make a difference?

Losing ourselves in smartphones and Facebook,
Not taking time to work on what we want,
Time consumed by meaningless distractions.

Success for us is to be productive,
Living like everyone else around you,
Not taking time to work on what we want.

No more than another brick in the wall,
Doing everything to blend in the crowd,
Living like everyone else around you.

Loyal consumers singing the jingles,
Living day to day, without any aim,
Doing everything to blend in the crowd,
Why can’t we wake up and make a difference.
