Poems and Poetry

Straightforward Task | A Poem by Guy Farmer

It can’t just be easy,
I guess;
Everything appears to have
The distinct tendency to
Become annoyingly complicated
Instead of pleasantly simple,
Developing into ever more
Complex convolutions of
Contortions engendering
Unnecessary grief and
Consternation rather than
Peace and calm;
A straightforward task
No longer,
Realization elusive.
