if i fall down and dont get up
will that mean ive had enough
or perhaps i like it better

a solitary wrinkle does fall
upon me
adds much to the ugly
underneath
where mother nature
allows me to be released..

Thinking is just what a great many people think they are doing when they are merely rearranging their predjudices.
