William Carlos Williams - The Term

A rumpled sheet
Of brown paper
About the length

And apparent bulk
Of a man was
Rolling with the 

Wind slowly over
And over in 
The street as

A car drove down
Upon it and 
Crushed it to

The ground. Unlike
A man it rose
Again rolling

With the wind over
And over to be as 
It was before.

I don't think it is my dilemma
It looks like software’s dilemma
When comments are reached to twenty-two
It also becomes a mistake too.

It starts all over from one
But, poor readers stuck with this one
Cannot read the rest but only one!
