I Guess I Am A Pessimist

I guess

I am a pess-


According to the schisms

And the rhythms

Of our times.

I don’t believe that evil

Will prevail




Good and evil alternate –


Love and hate.

I define myself

Against the –ist and –ism,

And I find myself

A pessimist:

Valid as a



Edible but not delicious.

Maybe, just a bit nutritious

Observing the necessities of circumstance.
