SISTERS

One loves me.
One does not.
I will get over
The one who
Does not
And I will get under
The one who
Does.

Sometimes
It’s better to run
Than walk.

Sometimes
It’s better to think
Than talk.

Sometimes
It’s better to agree
Than baulk.

And today
It’s better to drink
Than caulk.

editors note:

Would rather drink than do almost anything, but this talk incites me to walk, not baulk, away from caulk! Hell, yeah! – mh
