ask and ye shall receive

I didn't ask but oh what I got--

the universe shifted around my every move

and all I'd had was suddenly not--

but I wasn't about trying to prove--

hapless before merciless onslaught

that the One was set only to deceive--

that all was not as I originally thought--

I'll know better to toss proud reserve

and ask to be up to taking what I deserve--

and should I fail at that typical task--

shrug and say I don't know I asked

for a cow and they sent me a pig--

and whistle deep and small as the sky is broad and big
