"in a state of peaceful happiness"
according to the dictionary
not to me though
it is less peaceful more dull
less dull more stagnant
defined as
"having no current or flow"
"often having an unpleasant smell as consequence"
now that's more like it
similar to
a slow day at the office
doing a million things
but getting nothing done
the grind doesn't stop
which is getting me nowhere
or maybe somewhere
someplace like the pan handle
where the towns are still
that's where I'll probably fall
I'll try to get up
the weight of comfort holding me down
so I'll stay stagnant
until I drown
