chosen one

the truth is that none of you
saw me as I was passing through
all of you with downcast eyes
searching for some hidden prize
worlds could clash and empires fall
and none of you would see it all
Death could come with waving swords
drag you screaming off the boards
and who would know and who would care
that you were no longer there
a figure vanished in the gloom
gone to some uncertain doom
and all around the rest would be
silent still with none to see
and so I passed and now am gone
and never was your chosen one

    “all of you with downcast eyes
    searching for some hidden prize”

    This puts me in mind of all of the people you see who are obsessed with thier smart phones! Since I am a techno dinosaur, I just can’t understand that they have so much of any value to say to other people? Smart phone people are even walking into fountains and into walls!

    Oh, and I like this poem very much! Fankees Sunovawot!

    • Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€ As I can go months without making a phone call, I have even less use for a smart, or indeed dumb, phone than most. But people don’t need gadgets to be oblivious, I find I often have to dodge people who just haven’t seen meโ€ฆand I am not exactly small ๐Ÿ˜€
