  6. OFF LINE

    Why spend each day of life on edge
    Without taking time to pause or relax

    Preacher, Teacher, Scientist, Anchor
    There’s no sooth in their proffered proof

    Better to simply watch their lips flapping
    With the Sound on Mute and ears open

    To that other unadvertised broadcast
    To all those to whom it may concern
