The Other Half-Dozen

I’m the Queen

of Bad Decisions,

the Marquess of

Second Guess,

if any answer

should be “no”

it’s certain I’ll say “yes”.


yes, often chance

to choose presents,

in which case choice will be. . .

the road that wends

to no good end

and uphill trek for me.


No Prince

–just pea–

in pad by sea

an irksome prick unmet,

my royalty

is loyalty

to spoilers & regret.


thus best recourse

when picking horse

is backing without mounting,

at least that way

I won’t hit hay

when buck off can be counted–


off not on

is stance to take

a stand on which I’ll waffle,

it’s in ermine

I’ll fall from flight

it’s good!

(or not)

it’s awful.
