"ineluctability"/
Wonderful alliterative word:/
Unstoppable force of a rolling boulder,/

The inescapable passage of time. Thus:/
The ineluctable rise and fall/
Of civilisations;/
The ineluctable rule of religions./
The ineluctability of change and/
The ineluctable slipping away of the old./
My mother is ineluctably slipping away./
Is it possible to re-eluct?/
To call her back?/
Call back her youth and vigour,/
So she no longer yearns to go?
