Haiku Stack: The Aging of Ruby Tuesday*

In for the long term

Until cruel words are uttered

Toleration strained


Ruby Tuesday-ing

The only alternative

Acid tears melt chains


Now too old to run

Freedom equals loneliness

Start over again?


If one could predict

Tomorrow’s unknown promise

There would be less pain


Who knows the future

When subjectivity reigns

Wiser to remain…


*Title based on the song “Ruby Tuesday by the Rolling Stones
