just right

whatever I can’t control

my dad says with wry smile

I figure is just right


saves a lot of anguish

and even more worry

accept what you can’t change


work from what is

change what you can

believe in yourself

the surer i am i am right
the more likely i am
to be making an ass
of myself

i know that
have proven it to myself
how many times
yet need again to call to apologize

implacable, growing hot between my long ears
should signal me that i’m at it again
but doesn’t always
and yet

how often and often
in the coolness of later
family and friends will smile – tolerantly
and tell me i speak fine bray
