I've pages & pages first-draft poetry to facilitate this objective I searched, never found "shame" despite its surely having entered my mind It’s possible of course I scratched it out After writing it Because why Would I keep it Shame is misery to balance Distracts reality Simultaneously I now realize to spite its having such effect I took it out No reason to keep Mine or theirs, for Never long until Our cup’s yet full Replenished Day after day Refill upon fill Still, should I have none That could be appalling They’d probably say "She has no shame" Wouldn’t that Be shameful
