Rubik Cube

Yours is a horrendous bother

I decode one side, you obfuscate another!

I twist and turn, twist and turn again

fingers engrossed around your parts, another twist

extirpates the other side! My enthusiasm refuses to wane.

I warp your shifting visage, weave the obliterated wrist

only to dislodge several faces

I obligingly deface your six surfaces…


In my neurotic endeavors to unwind

the unfathomable thoughts on your wavering mind,

I take manifold cyclical turns in your opaque fog

Your stupor and anonymity declines to unclog!

My flirtatious advances don’t inveigle your obstinate resolve

Chances to demystify you haplessly dissolve,

In your complacent maze

and overwrought gaze!


Still in downright disarray

My fortitude, haunted by dismay!

You’re unfazed, you obliviously recline

Whilst my inquest continues to wriggle and whine!

I scrupulously ingest your manual again

and brace for another futile try,

Why am I so smitten, when I am already certain

You’ll still remain awry!
