Saint Also

I could have been a saint
but loved the streets too much.
Though the virgin martyrs shone like lamplight
they were cold comfort on a Saturday night.

I would have worked harder for world peace
but clipping coupons, hunting dust bunnies,
Mafia Wars, and making impossible pies
was more than I could handle.

I might have been a Buddha
with a belly full of satyagraha
and finished my novel, my thesis,
and also, the Christmas afghan.
