The Slowness of the Take

It's a slow turn to make
Some never quite uptake
Others see and understand
But can't completely stand

In a new era we're now entering
With roughened edges splintering
There are just a few odd moments lost
When changes evolve by dice tossed

Memories of past exchanges entwine
Curdling the milk and souring the wine
But underneath all of these past woes
Shines a heart of gold nobody knows

- Tristram
