Thursday Poem: An Apology for the Inconvenience

An Apology for the Inconvenience

He will regret speaking,
As he regrets so very much
Of a life not really used,

Except to pass slow time
In timid consideration
Of carefully-chosen options,

With well-defined limits
That remain within bounds,
And do not inconvenience,

Or otherwise draw attention
To his awkward fact of existence.

And, how even a mere whimper
Would be far too ostentatious
To signal his ultimate end.
