doggerel after a bad day

This imperfect instrument,
Offered with some diffidence, but
With some hope that it will suffice.

No guarantees, mind you, other than
It can take some damage over the short term...
And will endure it.
And work about as well as it ever has.

But it's available.
Whether it's worth the trouble
Is always a good question.

Chin up -- we are imperfect instruments all, but there is much joy in these imperfections yet.

And much to be silent about...but mediocre at best free verse wished to be freed...thanks.

as you say, always a good question. might be time to put on the Cannonball Adderley (with Milt Jackson) album "Things Are Getting Better" (1958)

Always time for that kind of thing, Rick!
