April 26 — A Poem A Day

Tradition vs. Innovation

One advocates change.
The other stands on its laurels.
One wants total renovation.
The other is content with the status quo.
One wants to maintain.
The other wants to destroy and rebuild.
Each seeks total control.

Debate, their first-born child,
Is abandoned.
Compromise, their next-born,
Is rejected.
Hope, spontaneously aborts.
Triumph, withers in the womb,
Unconceived.

  1. Miscommunication indeed. Not exactly a happy topic today, but I suppose they can’t all be happy. Why can’t they all be happy, damnit! LOL

    But I hope that you had a happy day! 🙂

  2. very interesting poem. It reminded me of part of the storyline in the book “Angels & Demons”. We do tend to fight ourselves. Boots on the beach?
