Doppelganger Disclaimer

I do not have a doppelganger. There’s no evil twin
wandering around within the world I’m in.
So any malfeasance—any scrape or sin
that has occurred in any place where I might have been
please attribute just to me. I will take all the blame.
Blaming a doppelganger would be to share my fame.
Sometimes I am a stinker, but at other times most jolly.
I’m responsible for all of me—both bravery and folly.
As a denizen of this fair world, until I pull up stakes,
I think it’s only fair that I claim my own mistakes!


The prompt word today is doppelganger.

        Hey, just drop me a link anytime, for any reason. I’m always delighted to read your work, but lately I’ve become so addicted to Japanese number puzzles that I’m missing a lot. I’ve discovered that numbers help me to escape from harmful thoughts. Come to that, so do your poems, but they don’t require the same leap into logic.
