A​​rrogance, a sad word holding no purpose in this meaningless world, since we

R​evolve upon the commands of some power against which we cannot dare

R​ebel, for so subtle and impalpable it is, so divinely mighty, readily

O​utpassing our will, denying us of our right to choose for ourselves,

G​orging us with torments, to have us submit to it while we become tragic 

A​ctors and actresses, all dutifully playing out roles in our own

N​ether, blindly believing ourselves to be the center of everything that exists, but, if we

C​ared to adorn ourselves, with the spiritual commands of this same power, those which

E​nunciate of how fickle and short life is, why, our passage on this Earth would be blissful!

    The poet has attempted an acrostic on the general subject of the human condition in a largely unrealised universe far beyond man’s control.
