Even So

by Sami Bennett

a poem

Against the advice of lots of people
(who from past experience learned it was impossible
who insisted that I never
that it wasn’t worth the endeavor
they that didn’t recommend
who knew it’ld come to a bad end
that it was against the majority
that it defied the best authority
that it wasn’t right but wrong
that there’s nothing new under the sun
that it was an unthinkable action
only an improper distraction
for no one ever does it
for it’s ridiculously unfit
for one shouldn’t have such views)
I wrote this for you.
