Human Racing

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.

Level up your day with an often-imitated, never duplicated aural transmission from Raconteuse Radio!

This tiny — but mighty — podcast celebrates the oral delivery of the written word. My goal is to showcase and chat with emerging & established writers at all stages of their careers and probe the minds of unshakable industry folks to show us how to become published poets and authors.
