Peril of monotony

flowersAs the tedium of an insipid existence

Threatened to wear me down one day

I realized my self-imposed insistence

On a rigid routine could bring trouble my way

Of monotony, I’d read, one should beware

The mother of all deadly sins it can be

I see how it can catch someone unaware,

Presenting a distorted perception of reality

It could propel one into danger’s widespread arms

Spur forbidden, amorous thoughts of infidelity

One may be led to crime, lured by imaginary charms

Breaking monotony can test one’s integrity..

Therefore should you stuck in a rut feel

Face the monotony as soon as you can

Procrastinate, and the forbidden fruit will gain more appeal

And definitely derange your best-laid plan.
