To Get What You Deserve

Do the thing that can’t be done.
It’s simple, she began.
But only do it if it’s fun,
her admonition ran.
Use impossibility
as soap to wash your hands.
And take on imbecility
until it understands
you don’t yet know that God
is made entirely of silliness,
and you require a prod
to find a navigable willingness
to barbecue life on a spit
and summon up the nerve
to eat delicious bits of it
to get what you deserve.
