Afoul



I have run afoul of the opinions,
offended the fashion,
disregarded the hypotheses.  Why?

It seemed desirable.
It seemed essential.

I found myself operating counter
before ever considering the advisability,
the disadvantages.  I found myself.
Rejection is such a small price to pay.
I'll understand this someday.
