Another New Metric

There’s always a day a record gets shattered;

Jovial, proud: celebrate the achievement,

News of the new metric is shared and scattered.

Once the spotlight dims, there’ll be bereavement.

The glitz and glam soon fades into the darkness;

Those who prop you up want downfall, such starkness.

You could snap like a chain off the derailleur;

Bad energy brings futuristic failure.
