Since I Went Back to College
Since I went back to college
it feels like my life has rebooted,
rather than just about to wind down.
I don’t have delusions of winning a grand career,
other than the one I already have.
When I get my degree, it may persuade editors
that I really do know what I’m talking about.
But in these last decades or so,
I’m not too worried about what editors think.
I’ll self publish what I’ve written over the years,
except with a few more footnotes and better grammar.
And if some day a reader, searching for answers,
or, at least, interesting questions happens upon
my writing and gets to know You better,
then it will all be worth it, even the college degree.
