SO TRUE

SO TRUE
Ivan Jenson

And so it is written
and so it isn’t done
isn’t it that way with

procrastination?

And so what you do
is so unlike what you say
isn’t it that way with

promises?

And so you laugh
while you so want to cry
isn’t it that way with

public appearances?

And so you teach
what so cannot be taught
isn’t it that way with

preachy life lessons?

And so it all comes to a halt
when you so much want it to last
isn’t it that way with

pretentious poems…?

  1. MM welcomes a new poet, Ivan Jenson. He’s sent in some good work which includes pithy observations and a sense that he takes himself with a pinch of humour.

  2. Yep! Preachy life lessons…the blogosphere is full of them!

  3. Ivan confronts an obdurate universe with a poetry’s force of wordsmith magic.
