The posings of a poet.

AUTO IDIO


I’M SORRY
            IF THIS
                        RUBS YOU THE WRONG WAY
BUT
                        ROME WASN’T BUILT IN A DAY

SORRY
            IF I END UP
                        ROCKING THE BOAT
AND YOU DON’T GET
            TO
                        SOW YOUR WILD OAT

IT MAY NOT
            SWEEP YOU OFF OF YOUR FEET
TO HEAR YOUR IDEAS
            MUST
            TAKE A BACKSEAT

I APOLOGIZE
            IT’S NO
                        BED OF ROSES
BUT LET’S NOT
            SPITE OUR FACE BY CUTTING OFF NOSES

I WILL TAKE YOU
            UNDER MY WING
I’LL HELP YOU
            THROW YOUR HAT IN THE RING

BUT
            DO NOT BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU
FOR
             YOUR CAKE CAN’T BE HAD AND EATEN TOO

FOR THEN YOU WOULD
            SIMPLY FIND
                        ALL YOUR BRIDGES BURNED BEHIND

EASY COME, EASY GO

NOW APOLOGIZE
            EAT SOME CROW

IF THIS DOESN’T
            TICKLE YOUR FUNNY BONE
GO BACK TO YOUR
            GLASS HOUSE AND THOW A STONE!
