A state of unrest begins, agitating

With increasing speed

The centrifugal force moves away

From the center about which it

Revolves

Collecting oily globules

That resist any understanding and

Until it forms a mind of its own

Creating two minds at war with each

Why all this confusion that continues

On and on?

Until the thought is brought to mind

There is no one to blame

This is a process of its own, of which

I am powerless to explain!
