E is for Existence

Maybe I did ask to be
here
and maybe I
was offered
a comprehensive list
of parents
to choose from
and it might well be
I was given a reason
and a mission to accomplish
and each and every character
I have ever met are merry
marionettes speaking
the pre-planned script
written by a bevy
of seasoned Sesame Street
styled ventriloquists
who were hired
by the executive
producer of
the greatest
mini-series ever told
to guide me
from my ABC’s to my
XY and final Z
see,
I’d rather be
the brainchild
of a TV show
tycoon
than the bastard
baby of a prehistoric
baboon

editors note:

I’d like this MC to square my story with the media and move on to the book deal. – mh
