Doldrums

August has been a long time here
Trade winds elusive,
not quite near enough
to sail these bankrupt seas,
instead
doldrums depressed
we sink deeper into lassitude

No more dead horse to flog,
throw overboard,
the debt remains,
no work to work it off.
Doldrums depressed
we need a degree of latitude.

Were we not becalmed,
Rudderless in this bankrupt sea,
we would set sail
to the nearest shore,
doldrums lifted
raise high the flag of gratitude.

August has been a long time here
Trade winds elusive,
not quite near enough
to sail these bankrupt seas,
instead
doldrums depressed
we sink deeper into lassitude.
