All’s Poor That Ends Poorly

In such a day
Did Shakespeare discontinue plays
And write his final act.

In such a day
Did Finster preach his final sermon
And paint his last discarded piece of wood.

In such a day
Did Beethoven close his doors after a final concert
And sit curbside on a Vienna street.

In such a day
Did Robert Burns words last ring the air
For Auld Lang Syne.

In such a day
Did Diogenes enter the marketplace for the last time
Looking for an honest man.

In such a day
Did Zeus and Hermes descend in misr’d disguise
For understanding.

In such a day
Did God cause the rain to fall on the good
And the bad.

“Let’s grow up together,”
“Let’s twist again like we did last summer,”
The poet mouthed.

“All’s well that ends well,”
“The darkest hour is just before dawn,”
I’ll drink a pint a’ that.
