Phobophobia

The syndrome never ends
Dining on his own tail
Feeding his own fear
Which grows exponentially with every bite
It rarely recedes
Typical measures may well be
Hyperactivity:
The headless chicken pathology
Immersion in both work and play
Diversionary tactics:
Seeking escapism in every corner
The pursuit of leisure activities
Hyperawareness:
Sucking up every current event
Swelling with news knowledge
Money:
Burial in green
Finding that sense of false securities
And the joy of conspicuous consumption
Drugs:
The numbing of minds, emotions, souls
Addiction to mind altering toxins
Desperate spirituality:
Seeking divine intervention for the Super Bowl
And sex:
The fundamental Freudian drive
Indulgence in flesh so divine
The highest human ecstasy...
Could all this turn on fear?
And the mirror of fear
To pause and reflect would be death
Then best keep moving, I suppose
And turn out the lights while your at it.
