Accidental Necessity - Poem by Michael Fischer

I've had the worst
of both your worlds.
Is there a third
that will unfurl?

Hands drowned in blood;
Broken glass eyes;
What did I do?
What did I prove?

My shallow heart
drowns in my tears.
Floodgates open
my world of fears!

A prediction
An addiction
A conviction
An affliction

A broken crutch;
A mishandled clutch;
What did I do?
What did I prove?

    Whether accident or necessity, here it is again. A broken structure.
    Poems cannot have structures of this kind. They are too short for
    variations.
