I Win

 

around me this world clamours, clangs, clashes
it’s everything I can do to ignore it, it’s call is so loud
sirens of all descriptions sing their tempting songs
tempt me from this garden of so many years
to walk a path more trodden, if it lies less verdant

… it calls …

and every day, just by coming home, I win
