~nothing~ - Poem by Walter Lane

I ask for nothing and
Nothing I get, I want
For nothing, Nothing
Just yet. I need
Nothing, so nothing
For me. But nothing is
Nothing, how can
That be? If I ask for
Nothing, does it
Mean nothing to me?
No! If nothing is
Nothing than something
It be. So something is
Something I'll ask
Just for me. So don't
Give me nothing,
Nothing you can't see
And Nothing, I fear,
Would be good for
Me. So give me
Something, I might
Enjoy. And turn nothing
Into something for
Which I might ask
And that brings me
To, the end of my task
Of writing of nothing
Which cannot be used
To something you
Think, me would amuse
