Lessons of Sadie Hawkins

Life in its myriad of dances has it’s meaning sometimes coming in multiples of delusion…

The Mad Circus 4 Halloween- Some Ferris Wheels Have Seen Fairer Daze

Lessons of Sadie Hawkins
by Michael Doyle

Sock hop memories wake the school
Where twists in plot are the rule
All of life is filtered in its distraction
Where television and other screens are the attraction

Roman circuses pass out their bread
So that the common man feels less dread
Time springs its ideas into reason
As life unfolds with the changing seasons

One by one, our days quietly fadeaway
From wherever they went, when they went astray
There's so much laughter to our side's shake
That we wonder if we dream when we're awake

Song titles become themes to live by
As a symptom of the desperation by which we try
To stuff away as if it's growth to persevere
While really all we're doing is passing through here

Comically implausible we compete for nothing
Cosmically impossible we make everything into something
All of this in an effort to make our connection
As life spins us around in a million directions

Life lived splits its long sense of division
As we subject ourselves in morbid derision
Until there we are at our last turn of page
Easing our pain from all of our empty rage

Giving it up for the costs of lost love
As we keep our eyes reaching to the above
Sarcastic in the turns of our phrase
Most of our life is spent in its daze
