In This Life

written by: Nesbit and Gibley



I decided to rip the fabric of habit.
In my appetite to stray from the routine
Where I was free from fears, scars and doubt,
Watching waves roll in,
Roll out,
Watching customers come in,
Then go,
I struck a hornet’s nest
With Mother’s rusty gardening hoe
And ran for the hills like a Neanderthal
Just to feel
The primal excitement
That the newspapers never delivered.

Nesbit and Gibley are two old men who write. Ripe in age and with over one hundred and sixty years between them, they've decided to get it all out before they expire.
