Poetry of Kansas

Marked

Some stubborn aim, your drivel obscures,
Yet unsmothered in your fecklessness,
Hits bulls-eye.
 
Some plummet, simulating fish or treasure-lid,
Holds course in deep-sea currents___
Strikes bottom.
 
Some obstinacy pounds behind your brain,
Stammering, is sure of yes and no,
Where cocksure hem and haw.
 
With grim unreason I know Destiny will
___Tongue in cheek, winking at God___
Foreclose on you.

__Margaret E. Haughawout.
