Alternative Motive

Oh, my dear, the conceptual relationships of our minds
has indeed created simultaneous occurrence,
to provide shelter on a night, such as this,
to a stranded, bedraggled student,
a cosmic coincidence, if one would believe,
come, sit, that’s it, right there,
cognac? No, quite right, not my dear,
now where was I?
Yes, thank you,
I profess an emotional excitement,
at suggestion of the manifestation,
of parallel events,
to one of the Silent Generation,
allowing a chance to contest,
unimaginative indifference,
that might, just possibly
drag and scrape a revolution hopefully,
of the promotion of innovative invention,
of technological progress beneficial to the next generation,
but before your cautious, unadventurous self,
does run far from this lecherous lecturer,
let us explore, furthermore,
your appearance, in the rain, to my tutorial quarters,
You see,
separation is more apparent than real
yet meaningfully related,
synchronicity I believe,
metaphorical patterns surround our casual meeting,
why so surprised? Come now, surely you did not think,
this was mere cause and effect?
Oh no, my dear, the universe has indeed sent me an angel,
a conceptual framework encompasses our meaning,
you being here, so young and…fresh, I confess,
an inappropriateness to my reasoning,
for if I look for an intricately structured logic,
two offspring and a wife shall provide it.
