The Unimportance of Being Me


They say
Love makes the world
go round
That Hate is really out-of-date
Although it still is found

It seems
Sex is here to stay
indefinitely
That Lust is a must
Especially today
But me
I need not be
It matters not a jot
If I get hot
Or cold
Or bold
Or scold another
Or love
Or laugh
Or cry
Or lose my mother

Life goes on
And would continue
should I die
But I alive sit wondering why
No-one seems
To claim the blame
For this
unflattering
so shattering
Thought

Of me not mattering.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
