Pompeii

Sometimes I feel like such a jerk
To hear friends talk of long lost work
Few leave their homes
All had good jobs
From nine to five
Just working slobs
When all is really said and done
Where was real life?
Where was the fun?
So as the years now just roll by
And no one really cares a bit
To hear these has beens spew their wit.

    The title makes this work intriguing. Are you saying your friends are buried in old ash and lava (their personal surroundings and experiences) waiting to be unearthed?

    Pompeii signifies the ruins of a once productive active society.......my poem signifies the demise of men once part of a productive active society.
