An Old Fool

No need to argue that point.

Years ago I dismissed it and

I know my rationale precludes 

any thoughts of revisiting it.


As an educated person any

contrary viewpoint deserves

an answer, so I’ve developed 

several I use without thinking.


Honestly,  my logic is defensive.

I protect my legacy like you.

I don’t want to and won’t 

accept a flaw I’ve lived with.


My use of words can be protective,

kind, then cutting, close together.

Deflect and delay to smear the truth.

My eyes and posture defy me.


Fools put on a fancy dance,

living under cover, exposed.

Old fools believe self worn examples,

which were never really true.
