Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc

The lie
“After this, therefore because of this”
is true

cuz treadmill don’t stop
stomach don’t quit
rent don’t go away

no winner’s circle
no golden ring

and the view down the road
looks to be a bad disaster movie
with its tacky tawdry
unfun unfair
one more Zen joke on folk

so it’s down to mirrors and moments:

who do you see in the mirror in the morning
when you hold your moments close?
