My Last Poem
 
I wonder at what point I will write my last poem?
And shall it be a triumph or an obscurity, barely known.
 
Will wisdom and old age be defined in every verse?
Or shall I quit in disgust as each line gets ever worst.
 
Maybe I'll stumble upon a phrase that'll give me brief insight.
Or should it be written because of a profound change in my life?
 
Perhaps there will be deep meaning inscribed down to the last word...
But knowing me, I'll bet it'll just be, something quite absurd.
