the importance of being earnest

11 Aug

at the risk of being lazy

allow me to lift a title

although i may not be as Wilde as Oscar

i still know my way around town, and

the importance of being earnest

being forthright and fair

there may actually be a bear

with me

but only for a moment, you see

i won’t steer you right, but then

i won’t steer you wrong

i prefer others do the steering

while i contemplate my destiny

to meekly await my inheritance

and then contemplate my density

how so of much of what i ought to know

like dandelion seeds carried in the wind

it all escapes me
