Assuredly Uncertain

do not read the rest of this
and definitely,
do not think of elephants
when not doing so

but beware of the danger
Oh!, I forgot to mention
this may be dangerous

have you forgotten the line
about not thinking of elephants?

well, don't not think of them
if you choose
but, it will probably spoil the poem
though, now I'm starting to think
we've already passed that point


I suppose you would
like to get back
to whatever it was
you were not doing
before this infuriating interruption

I beg your pardon,
a bout of
"how stupid can I possibly get"
overwelmed me

(as for the danger,
I was misinformed)
