X And Y - Poem by Bill Grace

I desperately wanted to do X
But felt the pull of Y
Wrath of wife
Disappointment of daughter
X’s questionable propriety
Secretly tell why
I did not try.

We are always pulled
Between X and Y
- sometimes Z & W
as well –
You supply the values
for the variables
I’ll supply life’s drive.

In this dilemma
A good friend
A good counselor will help
A touch of Praeto’s instinct
to find the vital percent
A touch of luck
Perhaps God’s grace
In always struggling to balance
X and Y.
