Dreamt of an octopus bearing your name,
His tentacles grew too large for his frame
All exacting, willful, spreading a mile
Tearing in different directions the while.
Each its own importance prioritized,
Rendered the creature demoralized,
Battling, struggling, juggling, delirious,
Powerless and insanely furious!
Severing the limbs was no solution
Reining them in became his obsession
Normality awry, perspective lost
High speeding through life came at great cost
Burnt-out, most relationships frazzled,
Worn out, on the lonely shore he fizzled.
