life walk

they had packed up,
and they left for the woods.
those troopers of destiny.

they had granola,
and million dollar hats.
those walkers of revival.

their minds were set,
and the Carmax glowed on their lips.
those trekkers of freedom.

their walking tour began,
and ended suddenly.
when their life was over.

where are the toys?
where is the hike?
where are the adventurous ones?

they didn't read the manual
Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.

those foolish troopers.

those foolish people.
