Better ‘n Nada

When it seems to you to be
in whatever you are doing
almost good enough
stop
for then you may
and you will
lie back and proclaim it
to be good
that is how the gods thrive
how evolution guides
how we all survive
travails, turmoils, tragedies
yesterdays pile up
transform into maladies
infirmity cripples
wears us down like trousers at the knees
on ‘em
hands clasped, pleading
for millennia it’s been done
no response
do it anyway
that’s how we are
it doesn’t work
but it seems to be
almost good enough
