The Ash Cauldron

Bereft of pretensions and oblivious to favour or fear

Going about both her work and life in a manner simple and clear

One such path brought her to the place of his toil

Little did he realise that his life would quickly be in turmoil.

Sorting out taxes in the morning with evenings reserved for beers

His existence became an explosive mix of unrestrained laughter and unconstrained tears

As the professional and the personal slowly obliterated a blurring line

He plunged into the circumstances fully knowing it wouldn’t at all be fine.

Elation and Enthusiasm converge to impress

Reality and futility together to depress.
