What I’ll Do | A Poem by Guy Farmer

What if they don’t like what I offer?
Worse yet, what if they don’t like me?
What will I do then?
What will I do next?

If I just think about it a little longer
I’m sure I’ll find the solution or
Deflate like an errant souffle.
What will I do then?

I know. I’ll keep obsessing
Until I’m unable to move.
The placid life of a statue.
That’s what I’ll do.
