Doing Better Yet?

At exactly what moment
Should I have said,
"I will do BETTER
Despite how bad things are?"
Can I get that moment back?
I have my doubts;
Everyone is afraid of going back.
It's a great bold self-deluding conceit
That we'd do anything very different
Or that anything would turn out different enough to matter!
Even if we suddenly had more balls,
It's doubtful we'd have a bit more sense!
Like a homing pigeon, we'd go home and strut
Without having the least idea what Home really is...

  1. "Home" is a key on the keyboard. It's opposite is "End". Class over.


Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
