A... poetic form that I don't know the name for, inspired by today's prompt: perfection. Hope you enjoy! (If it even is a poetic form!)

Ignorance Is Bliss

We stumble upon thirst-wretched ground,

We stumble upon thirst-wretched ground, Ground that is wizened and marred by relentless age,

We stumble upon thirst-wretched ground, Ground that is wizened and marred by relentless age, Age that deems us blind in our ignorance,

We stumble upon thirst-wretched ground, Ground that is wizened and marred by relentless age, Age that deems us blind in our ignorance, Ignorance, where riches are our common interest,

Interest leaving us stranded in multiple troubles,

Interest leaving us stranded in multiple troubles, Troubles that spread through us like poison,

Interest leaving us stranded in multiple troubles, Troubles that spread through us like poison, Poison diluted by hate and anger, though still strong,

Interest leaving us stranded in multiple troubles, Troubles that spread through us like poison, Poison diluted by hate and anger, though still strong, Strong be those who defy and deny the chains,

Chains that shackle and chafe our existence,

Chains that shackle and chafe our existence, Existence that dwindles away along time,

Chains that shackle and chafe our existence, Existence that dwindles away along time, Time we see past our so-called 'perfection'.

... A rant on humanity through poetic form. I don't really know the technique where every line begins with the previous line's last word. I also fear I may have butchered it!

Thanks for reading!
