Life Goes On

 

The name of a television

Show, I think,

As well as an old saying

 

And it doesโ€”

Life does go on, that is

 

Like one, unending sentence

Written and read

Throughout the years

 

An Edgar Poe-like sentence;

He could write a sentence

That would take up a page

And be no less fascinating

 

For the length and, what

Turned out, the breadth

 

A single-sentence life,

Broken up with punctuation

 

A question mark when

There is doubt, an

Exclamation point when

And where

Something needs affirming

 

Say, a celebration

 

A period when things must

Stop for a while, tragedy

Or wonder of accomplishment

 

Today is a comma

A pause
