No Joy But Lacks Salt

In your un-moving, consistent manner
you stay right, kind and constant
you wanton away those moments that call for change
you stay, the same, stationary
and what joy you bring while you're at it
what joy you bring
what songs they sing
for you, about you, around you
they ground you, keep you who you are
keep you from straying far
many a folk have turned fool to your joke
but they awoke
because after all that time,
after all those rhymes,
Joy was beautiful
it was life giving,
it was exhilarating
but not enough
for it lacked salt
and it felt tasteless.
