Too Late


Allegorical? No way
it’s the stone age
truth coming out
in a rash

It’s where you
chose to be by
dead reckoning

Plain as the nose
on your face if
you can’t deal
with the facts

Looking askance
won't change where
you’re at on a raft
of excuses at sea

Too late to mend
years choked by
too late to grieve
