Poem: "Rum, Obscurity, and the Lash"

Drink cheap rum;
Contemplate self-improvement;
More cheap rum;
You've chased dreams all your life--
Everyone says keep chasing--
You're tired of running:
Maybe it's time to settle
For cheap rum
And a few good friends
And obscurity.

Thankfully this poem is only partially biographical. I do sometimes wonder if I should give up on my dreams. Someday maybe I will.
