“Change of Plans” Poem of the Day (2022)

Change of Plans

By Ashley O’Hare

If you’re the bad guy,

why are you happy?

How do you get away with every lie?

Why does life keep granting your every wish

while memories are ruining mine?

Why should I bother having morals

when the villains have far more fun?

Maybe if I turn now and pick quarrels

I would be happier than living on the run.

I’m pivoting my feet,

adjusting my mirrors,

and preparing for the great leap.

My new life is near.
