One chooses to live his life
the best he can, following
the standards and examples
of accepted success around
but soon he finds himself in
a Town Hall meeting of opinion
vociferous din of acrid critics
for every decision, opposition
viral criticism and questions
of loyalty and sanity abound
while some guarded support
sits quietly in the corner, life
finally unravels, in spite of all
destiny dusted off, results seen
finally, in the long course of things.
