An Ape Regards his Tail (Again)

If candy makes you fat
And smoking makes you die
And sleeping makes you lazy
And lying makes you vile

Then what does a life of apology make you?
At least Narcissus stared into the pool because he saw something beautiful
A thing of beauty is a joy, for as long as it’s season

An Ape regarding his tail with uncertain regret
Is a joy for no one
Least of all the Ape
