Poem of the Day: An Imitation of Life

Live your life imperfectly
before you live someone else's perfectly.
Good advice from our friend, Krishna.
But his couch is so comfortable
and his TV is so big.
What if I don't want to give up
this imitation?

My life is definitely imperfect,
and I've lived it imperfectly.
But okay. For you, Krishna,
I'll give it another try.
