Leave Me Only "Ands"
Eliminate the ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’
And leave me only ‘ands’
Rise above the scrapes and cuts
And formulate new plans

Subjugate the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’
And try to see the ‘whens’
Learn from all my prior tries
And stand to fight again

Disregard the ‘hims’ and ‘huhs’
And make my own mistakes
‘Cause in the end it is as was
And I must still be Jake
Author's Notes:
Again...just snuck its way out. Blame my subconscious :)

Very clever and witty Jake. I still haven't read one that's not worth reading......

This is so clever...The rhythm is right on and it all makes sense. LOL. You can safely consider me a "fan" of your work now. So, I think I'll go away and leave you alone for a while now. I'll be sure to check back later. Again, great job!

'ands and when' are more positive than 'ifs, buts, how and why. Hims and huhs serve little purpose either.
I get a positive feeling when I read this, feels like a new beginning! =))
