Whatcha Gonna Do?

November 2, 2012

 

Stuck in a rut! Now whatcha gonna do?

You’ve got yourself in a corner there, ace.

You shoulda paid attention to where you

Were going, but you didn’t. Now your face

Has enough egg on it for an omelet,

All ‘cause you just had to rush ev’rything,

And look how sloppy a job you’ve done, yet

Listen to all the praises people sing

About you now, not truly knowing what

You’re all about, thinking you’re the bee’s knees

When, let it be known, you’re anything but—

Lest, of course, you’ve got something to show me

That I haven’t seen before out of you.

So what’ll it be? Whatcha gonna do?

This concludes this week’s “Poem of the Week.” I sincerely hope you all have had fun deciphering the meaning of this poem and will continue looking forward to whatever other poems I shall be posting here in the near future. As proposed earlier, please leave your interpretations in the comments section below, and as always, thank you for once again stopping by, and please check out my author page at Smashwords.com for current and future releases, and follow me on Twitter @DustinMWeber.
