! Being Philosophic About It All - Poem by Michael Shepherd

reviewing one’s life
in the light of eternity and
rebirth theory and
the lostcounteenth beer

I’ll say this…
I’ll say this…

one could say –
no listen I’m being serious –
was I fated to live this life
or did I earn it
or - was I fated to earn it,
ha?

but I’ll shay thish –
maybe I didn’t deserve better
BUT (dramatic pause, points finger)
I didn’t deserve worsh…

sub specie whatsit aeternitatis
strawnery how theesh Latin tags shtick
shub shpecie aeternitatish…

hurry up please it’s time
