Get Rid Of The Advertisements

I Yam What I Yam
 
'I yam what I yam, and I ain'ts no more.' --Popeye


Who would have thought
that this infinite wisdom
could be uttered by
a catooned sailor?
A humbling prophecy
sent to us simply
to teach us how to
form our behavior.

Have we learned his
lesson of life, or have we
cast it aside in lieu
of false ambience?
I'd venture a guess
that although we try,
we sometimes slip with
another's pretense.

Another may
boast again and again of
some perfection in
a wisdom or deed.
Then we must act
to silence the vaunt
and satisfy our
emanate need.

We may boast of
things we've done and what we have.
Enhancement, maybe,
or bit of lore?
On and on, then
real minds utter,

'I yam what I yam and I ain'ts no more.'
