A Fool’s Oath


Call me what you want.
Label me, yet this much I promise;

For as long as this air I breathe
I shall leave no money unspent.

I shall leave no dinner undined and no wine unwined,
No road unwalked and no risk unfrisked.

I promise I shall leave
No song undanced and no ale undowned;

And trust me…
I certainly will leave no woman un-manned!

Reckless, careless, thoughtless:
Call me all the ‘lesses’ you can.
But this I solemnly swear,
I will leave not an iota of life unlived.
