From The Shadow Lines..

Gazing, chewing in seclusion

Drawing inferences and conclusions

Interpreting from a safe distance

Content in a cosseted cerebral existence

I chose to assume, presume and anticipate

Over act, react and participate

I don’t indulge in anything nefarious

Yet I live my life in a manner rather vicarious

I am the man on every corner and street

Who looks on without being discreet

Time has left me impassive

To experiences both painful and massive

I’ve taken subtle refuge

In a cerebral subterfuge

Neither an actor nor debater

I’ve donned the garb of a silent spectator
