Monday Poetry Corner

Deleterious Disease

You suffer from
Pronoun confusion
Deliberate substitution
Of I for we
Indicating for all within earshot
That you speak
Only for and of yourself
So ingrained
Is this grammatical
A most brazen symptom
Of compartmentalization
Denial of the we
When it's very clear to see
This mental shifting of the gears
Allows for keeping options open
Let's a part of you run free
From oppressive obligation
My differential diagnosis
Presupposes that you know this
Your preference nakedly exposes
A terminal tendency toward 
Smorgasbord selection
Your own handpicked definition
For what single proves out to be
