Why this – and not THAT?

You may argue I am beyond all saving trace.

You may suggest I have no word to write what I do.

But I would counter – as soldier in and soldier out – you have no right either 

to put me in my place.

My place is one of humanity not chronology.

Yous started the game, 

not I.

You light a fire, and like a wire to a fuse, yous

knew what would happen.

I have lived without love for thirteen years.

I can learn to live without its bendition for

another thirteen more.

“Why this – and not that?” you might

very well ask.

“Why that –

and not this?” I would 

damn well retort!
