by Mather Schneider

Do your push-em-ups
be a good father
steady dependable
breadwinner so others
can grow in safety
and comfort within
confines of absurd
society seeming so
rational and even
dying with a smile
on your face is
victory happiness
success by others’
standards ignore your
gut above all stay
erect work hard sleep
enough and only love
one woman besides
your mother.
