Square one

We stand again

On this familiar spot

Where hope and trepidation meet.

Here, where impetus abounds,

And inertia reigns

We’re driven by hubris and crippled by humiliation.

Take to your bed while I pour a drink.

We’ve been here before.

And though I used to feel we could escape

I’m not convinced we’ve ever left at all.
