The fastest may not be the best
nor is Ben Nevis Everest.

The rules for host may not suit guest.

When the Holy Grail was the Quest,
Lancelot’s prowess failed the test.

Laughter in the Coliseum
could not be suppressed
though the victims did not share the jest.

Men rush off madly in all directions
to get the furthest from the start,
but not all journeys are wise selections
for the lonely speculations
of the human heart
as it tries to find its way back
to its place of rest.
