“We Hunters and Gatherers”

“We Hunters and Gatherers” 

By: The Female Yoda

 We hunters and gatherers

We seekers of all that’s sustaining and warm

Chasers, racers, building defacers

All searching for

Bliss

Because life is hard no matter how smart or rich or tall or if you don’t care at all

‘Cause everyone

Falls

Life’s a rickety ride

And there’s little good done by just trying to hide

At some point, you’ll fall too

And you’ll chase after, race after, embrace something new

We searchers of feelings

We hunters of joy

A life with no joy makes us think up a ploy

A way to find purpose

Or possession

Or love

Just something to fill up the pit where we sit eyes cast longingly above

We hunters and gatherers

We seekers of all that’s sustaining and warm

It’s not food, but a mood and we’ll search every way

And we’ll chase after feelings

Instead of the day
