Just Another Fool - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There is a right way.
And there is a wrong way.
And to proceed,
I recommend you do it...
Their way.

'What about you?
You seem to consistently break the rules.
To say and do as you choose.
Are you afraid to be considered,
Just another fool? '

Well...
I don't live in this neighborhood.
I come for extended visits.
'They' and whoever 'they' may be...
Can say anything they wish about me.
My goal is to be 'THEE FOOL'
With no exceptions.
