What if we called it a poem? Then what?

I Need To Quit That Shit

Are you kidding?
There's probably not time
to quit all the shit
you need to quit
before you die.

That would be sad,
to die not having quit all your shit.
It's like that golden idol of Achievement
you've been chasing after
and striving toward
all your life
finally runs you over from behind
and squashes you flat,
killing you dead,
and simultaneously achieving,
in a single instant,
every goal you ever had.

We are all swimming, my friends,
for that "far shore of Accomplishment,"
and if we drown in the process,
we will only have achieved it that much sooner;
we will only have arrived ahead of the strivers.
