Lessons From Sonic and Zen

Based on a conversation and then watching a movie as I was there sharing it:

Abstractia - The Road Speedily Traveled

Lessons From Sonic and Zen
by Michael Doyle

Large popcorn, extra butter
Tasty treat and then another
Settled in blanket to watch the show
Cuddle in now and let's go

Hedgehog's don't amble
But, they do often ramble
The one on the screen is running fast
He's new to you and yet a thing of the past

All the lessons you would learn
Like how to carefully discern
That with great powers comes enemies
And other such wounded intimacies

There's a lot of magic in lightning speed
And your smile tells me, it's agreed
That greener the hills, the less the worry
That's a good thing for how always in a hurry

There is safety found in self-isolation
Despite the loneliness and alienation
I wink and warn you against being too clever
And not to worry as it won't last forever

While it's best to confidently have no doubt
We all know the drag of what that's about
It never hurts to have a ready Plan B
Wrapped inside the spare box of diplomacy

These are the things that come with change
To be proud of and not thought of as strange
And while all of this is a lot to sink in
These are the lessons of Sonic and Zen
