A Typical Nero

The same version of the same thing,
running from fire to fire.
Putting them out by conditioning,
Another gold star to acquire.

Meanwhile, the ash of conquered flames,
Blends in the skin of the ‘hero.’
Prophecy marked, a blessing or a curse?
When the counters stand at zero.

Cannot stop what one was built for,
There has to be a better way.
Loving and loathing the same side,
On the record, the needle that makes it play.
-Thomas Spychalski
