"Like lemmings"       [terza rima]

Like lemmings who famously run
and leap (call it social conditioning?)
as if seeking their place in the sun

it's peculiar how writers (whose cushioning
is typically pride and presumption)
so eagerly hurtle   their oceaning

(if ocean shall greet them) shows gumption
they vie to outdo one another
in blithe escapades of redemption

whose language is deep humiliation
awash in the rush of elation
