October Comes


having faced the facts for years

I must soon act upon my choice

must choose a choice most foul

whether one way or the other(s)

though they seem as distasteful

as they try to garb the other(s)

in what they wear themselves

my choice limited to the choice

of either the kettle or the pot

or the tiny pan off to one side

but whats this poor man to do

if all are black and I need clean

I cant choose one or the other(s)

without becoming black myself

I would not sully truth for gain

let them sell their souls alone

I cant walk with close enough

or compromise become my way
