Checked by reality

“Time for reality check”
a voice said
so I checked the reality
“checkmate!”, she said

there are no
I repeat, no
higher courts
“you’ve wasted your life”, she said

“Learn from your mistakes”
the voice said
the trouble is
while you learn one move
she learns two

But proofs
They don’t excite me anymore
We believe what we believe
“You can win, you know”
The voice says again
I don’t see the conviction

They are harmless
Ah they split open
Enjoying anonymity
All the while

“Change the metaphor”
My, aren’t we persistent today?
But you see
The reality
Is hardly
A metaphor
