I Ought To

Do something useful
Not sitting and stringing lines together
To be fed into a fan and aimed at a wall
To see what sticks

Yeah, sure. Why not?

Something that does not have me
Stare at the screen
Hours on end
Maybe flexing my fingers over keys
Though no music comes from them
Most times

Something that lets me be
Proud of me
For once
Because that does not happen often

Hubris is not the same thing
Although it is something
I have done
And done
And done
As many can attest
And many once happily

Be something I am not
And never was
And likely never will be

A bit of funding would help with that, if you’d be so kind.
