Banal

He sat, thinking. 

There wasn’t really anything that needed to be said

No cause that needed to be championed

No wrong that needed to be righted 

And all and all just not much to be done. 

The night hummed quietly along

His thoughts were scattered and subdued 

No passion rose within him

No brilliant idea came to him all at once

No sudden desires seized him with determination 

And so he kept on sitting and thinking 
Now there were things that could be done, sure 

And certainly someone was awake 

But life seemed to come to a halt as he sat there thinking 

And he couldn’t imagine what he could possibly do

Or what he could possibly say 

And so he sat 

And so he thought

Until the sun rose the next day
