Every time I go to put down a poem
About my partner or family
That little guy inside my head says,
Hey You Can’t Say That! And when I ask,
Why not? He says. Are You Serious?
You Re3ally Don’t Know? But, of course, I do
But you can’t fictionalize everything.
You take away the bite of authenticity.
So I’m left with another poem I want to share
And I would, I really would but do I dare?
