Napowrimo Eighteen: In Medias Res

"Today’s prompt comes to us from Cathy Evans, who challenges us to write a poem that begins and ends with the same word. You could try for something in media res, that begins and ends with “and,” for example. Or maybe “if.” Or perhaps you could really challenge yourself and begin/end your poem with a six-dollar word like “antidisestablishmentarianism.” "...from the site's day one hundred eight of year seventy two, 'running', not 'of our Lord', though you wish it were true, that you were a saint, not this self-centered you.  You should be so (lucky, grounded, ___ serendip) as to always wish it, nay, demand that it always be just, be,  so....
There are just so many hours in a day, many days in a week, so many months in a year,
and for that matter, whoever measured(s) the value of 'so'.  Is it a nanosecond?  Half a minute?
In the middle of lunch, I dash to the computer,  the highest level of mathematics with which I have to deal.  I have an overwhelming urge to look up the word, so.
