When things are going swimmingly,
Or so they say,
Do I say "No, actually,"
Or do I lie still, let them go their way.
When things are headed up,
Or so people think,
Do I give them a "Hup, hup!"
Or scream, "You're going to sink!"
When people don't want answers,
To questions left unsaid,
Should I show them their flawed lenses,
Or merely shrug and say "Too bad."
A calmer soul I wish I had,
A lesser passion won't be too bad,
If I were a lesser friend,
This poem I would not pen.
