  6. SELF-PUBLISHING

    Looks like it’s not enough to be clever
    You can still end up in the lost-and-found
    You can split the scene or stand your ground
    It’s been that way since forever

    No rock solid link to Spirit whatsoever
    None of our conjectures are too sound
    You hit multilingual traps, rebound
    Somersault, screaming, “Never!”

    Yet how to survive in a dull world while sharp
    And not end up in the lost-and-found still?
    Whether giving in or refusing to budge

    An open verdict, an absentee judge
    Endlessly replaying “The World According To Garp”
    You can read on the scoreboard the result: Nil Nil
