The Book

It’s something to put out into the world,

And maybe everyone should do it.

Well, not everyone would do it,

But at least one book is in us all.

Oh, yes,

We all have one book in us.,

Thoughts at bottom ageless,

Basic, universal,

Willing reading level

Out there

Somewhere.

All that is required is –

And there’s the catch:

Stamina, stick-to-it-ness and ready cash.

That said,

It is no guarantee of being read.

The bonuses are breakthroughs,

Insights into self and style,

Inner jokes that make you smile,

Self distance

And, God willing, fans.

Yes,

Something to put out into the world;

To dare and do with flag unfurled

At least just once.
