Boiling frogs


This is different

New

I’m not sure how to handle it

I’m confused

Because for once I’ve  not been blindsided

It’s a gentle progression

Whether we admit it or not, this is happening

We are happening

Despite ourselves

It’s terrifying

This slow burning process

We pretend that the temperature isn’t rising

That the water isn’t simmering into a boil

No, we’ll adjust

Allow it to consume us

Until it’s too late

And there’s no going back

That’s the way you cook frogs
