Transitions-Departure (poem)

Departure Jigae

I'm leaving it all behind

Shiny ties
Averted eyes
Customary lies
Macho guys

Lurching bus
Market fuss

Taxi racing
Progress outpacing
Production replacing
Economy unlacing

Plenty of spice
Too much white rice
Haggle for a price
Life can be a slice
Yet abundance not suffice

Traffic comes and goes
Promise forgets then knows
Beautiful rose
Edited nose
Absurdly painted toes

Manic exuberance
Drunken fool dance
Label pants
Furtive glance
Cornucopia of chance
Classroom adherance
English class trance

Fem style exaggerated
Nation's story underrated
Political will understated
Some foods and places overrated
Performance ever evaluated
Appearances often inflated
Confidence at times deflated
Self sometimes incinerated

Leaps of history
So much mystery

Too much pride
Tradition in backslide
Treks along mountainside
Philosophies collide
Fears rise and subside
Lovers on the side
Cars and trains they ride
Pleasures by the seaside

Steam
Seam
Bream
Beam

John
Con
Dawn
Prawn
Maun
Fawn
Pawn
Won

Rising sun
So much fun
So much done
So many a gun
War unwon

Constant confusion
Wonderful delusion
Sorrowful disillusion
Americanish diffusion
Yin-yang fusion

From ecstasy
To complacency
Fantasy 
To heresy
Elasticity
To plasticity

Long, long hair
Funny underwear
Peddlers that blare
Strangers that care
Crazies that dare
Yellers who swear

What is that place?
It's hard to say,
Though I lived it every day
For years--
Whatever it was,
I'll miss the buzz
Because
I was there and lived it;
It became dear
So I'm shedding a tear
As I leave it all behind.
