A SIMIAN SAM
Most of you know my “success”
Is writing about self, more-or-less…
No one else can tell
What I do as well,
All part of the writing process.
That gate house temporary position
Was not so much imposition….
Mission for me,
Familiar, yet a change in position.
From inside, the window’s a mirror,
Darkening things queerer…
My head profile
Didn’t make me smile,
The resemblance was not a “cheerer”.
That profile reminded me
Of orangutan or chimpanzee…
That shape of the head
But obviously it was me!
But I know my wife loves me,
And the Lord does with certainty…
No one has said
That I’ve ever heard,
“He looks like a chimpanzee!”
‘Though some have treated me “special”
And others show little respect…
I’ve found a niche
To scratch an itch
In ways many people detect.
Did the appearance of my true profile,
Trouble me for a long while?
‘Cause the love that I’ve got
Truly makes me and others smile! 🙂
