    Energy Debt

    Muscles balk, daring to challenge
    the mind that forces them on,
    A will made strong by memories
    of graves gone by.
    The latest only yesterday.
    A friend, contemporary,
    One who shared the last light
    of a journey daily made,

    Their only exercise
    that to and fro
    from pub to chippie
    then back to couch.

    Death initiates the will to change,
    Bringing unwilling body to heel.
    The energy debt incurred leading
    to sublime sleep.
    Mindless, repetitive
    actions bringing peace
    at last to mind unwilling
    to face the truth.

    That we are merely
    fleeting shadows
    in the great
    wheel of time.
