Sadness of the Gatekeeper | A Poem by Guy Farmer

Sadness surrounds
The gatekeeper.
So many precious hours
Spent making things
More convoluted,
Blocked, obstructed,
Rather than helping.
Pathological need to
Control driving base lust
For petty power.
Things are more difficult
Around here,
Thanks to me,
That’s how I matter.
