I bargained for the light of day
in between my karmic cycles--
for a human form--I begged and prayed
to be done with ghastly tentacles.
Up the food chain I did climb
my wish was sorely granted
and now in my supposed prime,
I'm bitterly disenchanted.
It's not the wars, or plagues,
or even mundane traffic jams;
It's that I realized my wish was vague
because now I find I give a damn.
