Routines

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






People seldom vary from primary routines.
They are as predictable as most well-oiled machines.
People rise for coffee from customary sleep.
They are as predictable as Rocky Mountain sheep.
People dispense hygiene from habitual form.
They are as predictable as a tropical storm.
People work vocations from hours nine to five.
They are as predictable as drones in a beehive.
People marry sweethearts from prehistoric times.
They are as predictable as inner city crimes.
People produce offspring from familial desire.
They are as predictable as baptism of fire.
People seek amusement from passion odysseys.
They are as predictable as romance fantasies.
People choose exercise from energetic games.
They are as predictable as many proper names.
People take vacations from home to Timbuktu.
They are as predictable as baby's peek a boo.
People turn to slumber from late news until dawn.
They are as predictable as an aquatic spawn.
