Heaven Forbid

Heaven forbid
I be deemed
Indecipherable.
Heaven forbid
I comply
or accommodate ya.

Heaven forbid
I abide.

Heaven forbid
there’s a reason
for all of this.
Heaven forbid
it all makes sense
in the end.

Heaven forbid
I be remiss.

Heaven forbid
we find
common ground.
Heaven forbid
we discuss
what’s wrong.

Heaven forbid
this subsides.

Heaven forbid
we slush around
in the muck and mire.
Heaven forbid
we scrape our knees
once in awhile,
once in awhile.

Heaven forbid
we do the right thing.
Heaven forbid we
scrape our knees.
