not give up when I am low

I will not give up

when I am low

I will not speak up

when I am high

In a unipolar world

with a bipolar brain

I will hold my cards till I show

If they make me an offer I cannot refuse

I will plead capitalism                   to tell them it is low

If they think I am          paranoid        and demand proof

I will not lie but                tell them         half of what I know

I have the Bible,          the Constitution     and       Shakespeare on my side

There is no

where else to go

This is the last

poem of the night

I try

to be fast

when

not slow

I try

to rhyme

just

as an

exercise

There

are

other

ways

to poetically

say

it

so
