Carrying pounds in undesired flesh    Plus overly sanguine,   I am now seeking shylocks

Rover spirit constantly crisscrossing continents    Ticking in diverse time zones has gotten hit  By time’s dilation and a bewildered body clock

Hunger pangs beset at odd hours these days  Forcing me to gravitate towards inviting  Open and hidden food sources

Life’s vagaries also threw perplexing scenarios   Vanquishing butterflies of insecurity was tough,  thus Resorted to feeding face to combat gaping maws within                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Last but not the least, this life of mine         Has been a litany of broken dietary vows         Solemnly made to caregivers and to self, by self

Carrying pounds in undesired flesh   Plus overly sanguine, these days I am now seeking shylocks ~                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         *Time dilation explains why two working clocks will report different times after different accelerations. For example,                                             ISS astronauts return from missions having aged slightly less than they would have been if they had remained on Earth                                          In the theory of relativity, time dilation is an actual difference of elapsed time between two events as measured by  observers either moving relative to each other or differently situated from gravitational masses                                                                                                                              Time passes more quickly further from a center of gravity, as is witnessed with massive objects (like the earth)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        ** Shakespeare’s In The Merchant of Venice, Shylock is a Jewish moneylender who lends money to his Christian rival, Antonio, setting the security at a pound of Antonio’s flesh. When a bankrupt Antonio defaults on loan, Shylock demands the pound of flesh.                              ***Sanguine: optimistic, hopeful, or confident: a sanguine disposition; sanguine expectations, red color of dried blood; ruddy: a sanguine complexion.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           PS: image is via www.Bard.Org. disclaimer
