My Book Collection(s)


I counted my books of poetry
and comedians' biographies,
and was surprised to find the latter
far outnumbered the former.

So I tried to even things out,
and more of the former bought,
until somehow they numbered
the same as the other.


I've lost count of how many
books I have of poetry.
Likewise with how many
I have of comics' biographies.

But now I don't really care,
if each set equals the other.
Still I can't help but wonder:
Which is sadder?

Dedicated to the late Robin Williams (comedian, actor, wrestler, among others), and the others...
