Home: Figments: To Battle a Wave

To Battle a Wave

Who are they to think
That you can battle a wave?
Should you plunge a sword
In translucent swirling depths?
Or construct a mighty dam
And form a defensive front?
Force an attack
Splashing back
Make another wave
Cancel that approaching swell
Or will you increase its size?
Be inclined to ride the surf
To go with the flow
Or be ripped away by the tide.
If in some distant time
Should you meet a cliff
While riding this ceaseless
Entropic tsunami
Greet it with a smile
For pinnacles of stone
Will crumble to sand
Relenting to the surge
Of this endless chaotic sea.
