What happens to a dream deferred?        Does it dry up       like a raisin in the sun?       Or fester like a sore—       And then run?       Does it stink like rotten meat?       Or crust and sugar over—       like a syrupy sweet?        Maybe it just sags       like a heavy load.        Or does it explode?
