Overthinking, The Bread

By Zulumathabo Zulu © 2018

Deleterious, distance
Adheres, like affiance
Unable, to conjugate the exit
At great cost, to the family
Chained to the economy
To reach the grinding mill
Overthinking, the bread

Ancestral vibration, detested
Trusting instinct, conflicted
The enteric arrest, suggested
The beast stomach, adjusted
The syntactic, unconceivable
The organism, undirected
Overthinking, the bread

Contextual Commentary

When the unsuspecting organism was swallowed whole by the fearsome Masumu of Matamong, it was an abrupt end to a life lived. The calculating and stalking Masumu had an attacker’s advantage over the unwary organism.

 The organism did not go down without a fight. The organism resisted vigorously as attested for by the undulating movements and the hard kicks in the internals of the ferocious predator. The vigorous resistance was convincing and justified but not enough for a meaningful exit from the belly of the beast and the digestive juices therein.

The problem had to do with the ambient changes in the environment that became like quantum mechanistic with the invocation of a different kind of ontic existence and too esoteric to be foreseen with a naked eye and understood by an ordinary carnal mind. Moreover, Yena was not attuned to the harbinger of the impending danger. Instead of being neurotic with respect to the moral code of survivability, the organism was cavalier about the environment and the infinitesimal changes that divined the messenger of death who struck like a lightening flash.

May the spirit of the organism rest in peace having sacrificed Yena to give us the objective teachings that are intended to enhance our survivability in the newly fanged environment of the terrestrial space.

As a postscript to the harsh experience of loss, the survivors of the organism are now better equipped with remote sensing in the underground to monitor and to watch for the slightest indications of the changing environment and to be brave enough to retake their positions as architects of their sacrosanct destiny. Notwithstanding, it is regrettable that an important lesson such as this had to be learnt the hard way and not the soft way.
