After Routine Years



Taken for granted are familiar cheers.
After routine years the ovation clears.
Taken for granted are familiar scents.
After routine years the aroma vents.
Taken for granted are familiar tips.
After routine years the directive rips.
Taken for granted are familiar sights.
After routine years the attraction blights.
Taken for granted are familiar things.
After routine years the property springs.
Taken for granted are familiar looks.
After routine years the appearance rooks.
Taken for granted are familiar tastes.
After routine years the gustation wastes.
Taken for granted are familiar smiles.
After routine years the gaiety whiles.
Taken for granted are familiar feels.
After routine years the emotion reels.
Taken for granted are familiar lives.
After routine years the stamina dies.
