Yesterday’s prompt :Write a ‘pattern’ poem.

(This may have come out a little more cynical than I originally intended, but hope you enjoy!)

Predictable And Tangible Tessellations Explaining Reality, Naturally (P.A.T.T.E.R.N.)

We live in a world of patterns
Trying to find deeper meaning
In pretty tables and grids
Or determine cause and effect
In crosses and colour codes.

They wrap the big wide world
And all of its deep complexities
Into a bright box of ordered shapes
So it makes sense to little minds.

After all, big, simple bars
Or easy-as-pie-charts
Are more appetising to the eye
And easier to digest than pesky words.

We sense them in movement too
Making peers easier to predict,
A small comfort to all of us
As we judge the actions of others.

Some may even cry in protest
If their precious pattern is broken,
For obviously a world without order
Must be one that has gone mad.

We live in a world of patterns
That like to play games with us
If they one day become bored
Of doing just what we expect.
