Oh I have been foolish,
on more than one occasion.
I have thrown caution to the wind,
only to have it fly back at me
in a frigid snowstorm
of consequence.

I have put all my eggs in one basket
on more than one occasion,
and seen my life poached,
scrambled, fried
and tossed out of the pan
and into the fire.

Oh I have been foolish,
on more than one occasion.
A fool and his money are soon parted,
nothing ventured nothing gained.
it’s all the same;
life.

I have lived.

I imagine I will continue to be foolish,
on more than one occasion.
I was foolish and bold,
now I’m foolish and old,
Steered my own ship.
Grounded it on more
than one occasion;
Still at the tiller…
