having done

philosophers cogitate
while poets and playwrights
and lesser such
consider much
of life:
from the rude
to the polite,
always stopping
to note wrong
from right,
and the vast chasm
of uncertainty
in between:
life as life,
and life as dream,
for what can seem
to be none;
not for being sure,
but for having
for having
for simply
having done.
