Canto CCCLIX

Heraclitus has been switched to Timeline.
Needless to say, he’s philosophical
about the situation, he’s resigned

to having the world scroll down his profile
to reread all those late night, drunken posts;
his failed conquests, long periods spent single,

the just-dumped tantrums and the new love boasts.
And then there’s that urge he could never pass,
those background moonies at the Christmas toast.

It’s not the same office, nor the same arse.

    No man ever steps in the same river twice and it’s not the same office or the same arse…Time moves on.

    O.M.G…I’ve just checked my time line, everything I’ve ever watched, said or posted is there. Some of this could seriously damage my reputation as a cool urban poet.
    Now to check yours.
