Sometimes the best thing
is the thing
that looks most like the thing
that it is.
Some of the people who say
Actors should stay out of politics
Are some of the same people who voted
Ronald Reagan into office.
Because it will, at some point,
Don’t stop looking.
You might not like where you find it.
But it’s there.
As another birthday passes
I am reminded that the question is not if lightning will strike
(whether it’s in or out of the bottle)
but do you have what it takes to stick around until it does?
