Fatigue (HA 97)

House Arrest

All creatures have to notice things that move,
and people are no different than the low.
Our species is impulsive too – we prove
it by the way we all feel boredom grow
when custom stills or culture stalls and sticks,
and interaction loses all intrigue.
That’s when we need a change, a spark to fix
the symptoms of emotional fatigue.

Abhorring lack of stimulus, we sink
amid the doldrums of dull weariness.
Escaping house arrest (as if we think
it’s safe) is our response to dreariness.
It seems all tactics must evolve, or dim
to meme fatigue and tepid acronym.
