Human Racing

Surviving is a verb
Living is too
Breathing, smelling, touching
Words that imply movement
I've not stopped moving
Since yesterday
Whenever that was.

Wish I could stop time
The rat race
Aging
Death
Sex
Taxes

Memento mori, Latin
'Remember you will die'
Keep that hubris in check
We're all born to die
A monied death
If you didn't buy it,
you're the product.

Can't stop, won't stop
We don't even know how to stop
Stop the ride - the human race -
Please exit through the gift shop.
