A Look at Myself in the New Year

Bob,
a simple palindrome
not Paladin,
the West to roam.
He was a gun for hire.
Bob? A sort of friar,
but not Friar Tuck.
He’s the same
coming and going
not a quagmire.
He’d like to think
he is complex,
but he is complicated
abbreviated
to a simple palindrome,
the same comin’ and goin’
no matter where
he is roamin’
— without a gun.
