Same Is Not the Same

 

The philosopher tried
to write like a poet
but couldn’t do it.

The poet played
with grand ideas
fast and loose.

The pilot promised
the driver it was sweet
at thirty thousand feet.

The driver replied
trust me while I drive
at a hundred and five.

The contented
as well as the contentious
will all agree
agreement is a convenient
social invention.

The exotic dancer
felt like a woman when
performing for men.

Her neurotic husband
failed to feel
the same way.

The contented
as well as the contentious
will all agree
agreement is a convenient
social invention.
