someday next week

these revelations will sink in and maybe i will not be so melancholy
or maybe i will finally sleep
and remember that a few weeks ago all was as perfect as it could be
the hope of a chance and so many future stories untold
i seem to always stumble just as i begin my stride
i was sort of hoping that the opposite theory actually held weight
but i know as a scientist and an avid purveyor of chaos theory
that the simple knowledge and choices we make
far outweigh the consequences of pheromones and biochemistry
sometimes you hit a single then get tagged at second
sometimes its three strikes and your out
rarely is the storybook a home run
in fact, when i remember to look in my history of chemical reactions
i see the storybook is a classic tragedy
