Unknown Pleasures

Why does nobody think it strange,
that in these times,
everyone finds ennui more pleasurable
than change?
Why does everyone prefer the turd
of the jejune
to the ambrosia
of the absurd?
I know why.
Becoz its
so damn comfortable
to never even try.
To never even seek to know
the jolt of life
as the disenchantments of bleak dreams
more familiar grow.
And the indifferent world spins at leisure,
while the blinded generations grope in the dark,
clawing at every distant
unknown pleasure.

I love the kind of sentiment that leads to this kind of writing. :)

T., why does idealism have to be ill-starred?? :( Just a bad mood after a bad conversation.
And from the guy who rhymed 'hump' with 'pump', that is high praise indeed! :D

Sugar Magnolia, I know, I know! :)

I know what you mean. It's a terrible feeling to wake up with.

Anty, it is. Its an even worse thing to try to sleep on. :(

Dee, :)

soin, are you saying ignorance really is bliss?

Someone please teach me to be non-absurd & normal. Why? So that I can understand the lament expressed in this post.

Anyways, did you find a fourth Pablo? Is that why everything is four?

Also, nice template to go with it. Fourth dot missing at most places! Ah, spelling out the subtle kinda ruins it eh? :P

Your style of writing has changed MAJORLY since your last blog. That had to be spelled out in bold.

I wonder if it's just that.

Also, I like it. A lot.

w.r.t Stupidosaur's comment: The 3 were dead, I believe. :)

A practical sure-shot guide to how to get beaten up online:

Go to url

Wonder out loud if the url actually means this:

Further wonder out loud that if that is what blue means, what could be tangled up in blue?

Stupidosaur, thats okay, I dont expect anyone to identify with anything I feel anyway. And I seriously did not put so much thought into the template or the blog address as you actually have. And like Sherry says, the three are indeed dead. And in my part of town, it wud be tough to find a fourth. :D You want me to spell out the subtle? The last one was the third blog, this is the fourth. Did I ruin it?

Sherry, Wow! I'd like to think I have really matured or something! ;) Thank you! :)
