Of obstinacy

This week’s entry for 3ww

None can eject what’s done
To change the fact is something
as absurd and idiotic
as taming the sun

But words, how they sting
To term its impact
one can not know
when and where to begin

With every lash of the toungue
it further renders otiose
Obstinacy is a quicksand
Further you fight, deeper you end.

    As absurd as taming the sun is a wonderful way to put it.

    So true! And you’ve written this truth in a charming
    and creative way.
