Lobelia (vomit wort)

the soldiers were the first to quit
filthy uniforms filled the laundry bins
while naked ex-soldiers laughed and danced

the disabled and infirm were the next to stop
wheelchairs and canes littered the hallways
and there was much jubilance amongst them

domesticated animals then abandoned the charade
subscriptions to streaming movie services quadrupled overnight
Benji and Flipper had again proven their timelessness

then there were those, like us, who were too afraid to stop
we held firm to our rituals and routines
and now we feel safe as we bask in our rewards

Try finishing something for a change. Your hopes are poisoned!
