The Fool Counts
THE FOOL COUNTS
by Shalom Freedman
How many books have I published?
How many poems have I posted?
How many pieces of writing have I made on the Internet?
How many entries are there when I Google my name?
How many countings will it take to prove that I have done enough?
The fool counts
And nothing in the counting
Takes away the truth
Of how it means little or nothing at all to anyone
Except the fool himself-
