LATE BLOOMS:  Preposterous Promises



Preposterous promises
are just that –
promises that are preposterous.
They’re bound to be dismissed
eventually as mere jests
that didn’t have to be
taken seriously
except by idiots maybe.
Or they would in time
be vehemently denied
as not ever being made,
no matter what
you think you once heard
(or perhaps just misheard,
maybe even misremembered).
Yes, preposterous promises
are nothing but
promises that are preposterous!
