Cold Comfort

comfort conspires by allowing a temporary confidence
but it soon breeds self-contempt
since it doesn’t champion courage or chisel character

so don’t care too much for it that you become cosseted
to the point that you cannot carry your consciousness to calm
amid the cries you’ll encounter on the road to creation

    ha ha Pat, we have to make exceptions of course, some great inspirations and even romances can be attributed to couch comfort moments… just don’t burn the toast or do 🙂

    I just listened to the title track 🙂 “In loyalty to their kind, they cannot tolerate our minds. In loyalty to our kind, we cannot tolerate their obstruction” thank you Sir Hauge for putting me on to it… good sound
