FALLEN INTO GRACE
(5/1/19)


despite
our lack
of effort

our dearth
of intent

our surfeit
of apathy

at times
we become
the beneficiary
of fortuitous
circumstances
quite beyond
our ken

others
may look
upon us
as unworthy

as less
than
forthright

we would
tend
to agree

but sometimes
the results
far outweigh
our efforts

we would
not recommend
a lifestyle
of doing
nothing
to anyone

however
in our case
we have succeeded
despite
our ennui

regardless
of our complete
resignation
to failure

and most
accusingly
of all

we still
do not
care
