Write a poem about confidence
when I feel less than confident
about what I write in the first place.
Here I sit, knowing it’s all shit
but still, I continue to write
there is no confidence here
only an old man, late to this
who isn’t one of the best
but is stuck with a head full
of random words and phrases
that might make me a Jeopardy champ
if only I could push that button
but that takes confidence
and when you get as old as I have
confidence is being able to pee
without dripping it onto your pants.
