on certain thoughts, my head turns muddy

no longer sure of where i sit

though others might think me a fuddy-duddy

the real truth is, i’m confused a bit

i once thought i had most things figured out

but nowadays i’m not so self-assured

long-held views losing pace to unsought doubt

whose barreling entrance can’t be deterred

questions arise without permission

especially when i lay me down to sleep

my main goal now, is to recondition

all queries, so they never even make a peep
