Back in the skinnerbox again

Living the life of a machine

None of our adjectives describe

Endless endurance in the crib

Spirits are dying to survive

Chilling the passion of the brave

All of our fingerprints are gone

Back in the skinnerbox again

  1. It is true, none of our adjectives can often describe all that needs to be said about living life in this world. It implies how sometimes we just cannot get out of the box we are put in, but we continue to strive to be more of ourselves. This poem is short and succinct, but thought-provoking and evocative as always.
