A Would Be Knight’s Tale

you have destroyed
relationships
collaborations
to the nth degree
that could’ve
would’ve
should’ve
mattered
most

the balls
you grow
when drunk
allow you to
slay
the dragons
and kill
the princess
all
in the same
tale

while you
remain
the only
character
left
in the story
that
never

ends

    Sad, indeed… sounds like a cautionary tale to me.

    sad, but really captures self-destructive behavior. i meant to ask you what grade/level do you teach?

  4. Scot says:

    lissa
    thanks–it does. I have seem growing up and as an adult booze and drugs take friends and family down while they refused to acknowledge it and fought you for caring.
