The last word in the first line of the first stanza becomes the first word in the fourth line of the second stanza

Neglected, on the edge of finality.
Protected, tomorrow lies in uncertainty.
Rejected, nature bares to humanity.
Expected, to savor an ort of insanity.

Insanity, forces the hand of aggression.
Humanity, severs cords in succession.
Uncertainty, savors representation.
Finality, masters humiliation.

Humiliation, seeks quiet refinement.
Representation, loses confinement.
Succession, expresses words of resentment.
Aggression, undoubtedly, acts of contentment.

Contentment, foreseen, never expected.
Resentment, exposed, always rejected.
Confinement, a method of being protected.
Refinement, can be, forever neglected.

This is a poem that one can "Go Figure!!!" how his/her world is felt.

"Go Figure!!!" is a thought's developer; a pleasing message bringing wise alertness. It flows on to wisdom.

Instructing and inspiring reading "Go Figure!!!" is.

May, Poet Paul Berube, enjoy a Memorable Season.
