ADULTHOOD – A POEM

23 Apr

It took so long

Mastering

What it matters

To exercise a charter

On things that alters;

A differentiation that does caters

For a bourgeoning desires

That vitiates Russian roulette

To a midgetting rumpus.

 

But

Does it matter

That I wallowed so long

Unliteratured – untutored

Vegetating

As it were

In hemorrhagic youthful libertinage

When my heyday

Verged

On sans and withouts?

 

Thingify me not!

That I hitherto doddered

In transit to sagehood.

Unconscionable is your opprobrium

Risible is your ratiocination

That faltered I

Laddering to adulthood
