Clearly Obscure
So surreptitious about the real me
But they know my shell isn't real, as far as I can see
Too obsequious to others demands
They hold my life cupped in their hands
Despondent about my current state
Uncertain about my future fate
I once heard you should "be obscure clearly"
From the mouth of one E.B. White
I think that's how I live, not merely
Just how I write
