Bloodhounds

Bloodhounds

attuned
focused
like bloodhounds
on a manhunt
for finding excuses
for never becoming
what we ever
only wistfully
profess
to wish
to be

honing our skills
for tracking
and hunting
lazy excuses
and accepting
the consequences
of our lazy
moth-eaten
excuse-riddled lives
than ever accepting
the easier role
of the handler
in charge
of his hounds

most of us
lazy bloodhounds
wildly chasing
scents
of an equally lazy
leaky
moth-eaten
excuse-riddled
culture

maybe we're
dumb, lazy bloodhounds
because
it's a lot easier
being a dumb, ole 
hound dog
led around
by smells
than a man
guided
by his mind
and forced 
to control
his will
