NOT SO BAD
(6/14/16)


90%
of the things
for which
I volunteer

(only upon request
of course)

never quite
transpire

of the 10%
that do
most are not
as laborious
as they first
seemed

in my youth
I would spend
much more time
arguing the request
than the actual
action

or inaction

would warrant

now
I simply
smile

say yes

allowing
the proposed
recipient
to eventually
defeat
their own
purpose

all the while
remaining
a great guy
