A poem

I’m so sorry, but I’m sending you a poem. Very few people really read and enjoy poems, but this one I wrote many years ago helped me age out of my stupidity.


Rigorous Honesty
dressed in white,
sun at his back,
rode into town.

My gang
took cover
in the wasted crannies of my mind.

False Pride
strutted on the rooftop.

hid under a wagon.

lingered by the saloon.

looked unarmed
but wasn’t.

Guns blazed.
Good prevailed.

My life changed.
Rigorous Honesty
saved my town.

That’s my poem. I promise you I’ll never send you another one.
