Parable of the Lesser of Two Evils

Spent my life

thinkin’ a winnin’,


trying to be free, but

‘long the way


everything told me

to be anything


but me.  In school

they said


my grammar was incorrect.



tol’ me I was fat.  So

I got a job


standin’ – employer said

I was lucky for that – and I



for 50 years.  ‘Til one day


I punch my boss

in the face,


come home,

eat a bag of chips,


sit down, and write

this poem.
