A Life of Routine

February 20, 2014

Don’t give me chaos, I find it quite obscene

Give me order, structure, give me routine!

The void and the vacuum I abhor

They make me shiver to the core

They take the value from life

replacing it with a placeless strife

There is comfort in the predictable

the safe and non-contradictable.

People say creativity comes from the void,

from the primal energy of blank screens,

but I bet those people would be annoyed

if I took away their beloved routines.

Lets take from you, your regular sleep

then we’ll see if your ideas are so deep

Lets take from you, your nourishing meals

then we’ll see if your flourishing peals.

Lets take from you, your regular contact with others

then we’ll see if anything creative you can discover.

Sure, periods of hardship, from these we can learn

a new motivation and passion they can spurn

But please don’t utter the obscene,

don’t dare tell me you need no routine!
