Character. Is it compelling?
we staggered along the shore
at waters edge like never before
two drunken mimes out of time
clutching each other's golden hands
in rhythmic dance with shifting sand
what led us to this time this place
who gave us the inane command
or could it be penance for a bad past
perhaps it is petty opulence
disguised within our jilted stance
sliently we proceed compelled
by some unknown need
though at half-speed we go
watching the sand sifting between
our stumbling toes at waters edge where
drunken mimes are never to go
it fills them with jubulant banter
