Mount Everest -- a poem

Feeling a bit poetic this morning, so here is a little something that just popped into mind.

***
I will not climb Everest
The mountain does not need me
I will not add to its splendor
Nor can I call it my own
It will not weep for me if I do not ascend
And it will not call my name to the heavens if I do
Those who climb the mountain say it is breathtaking
I agree: witness the colorful corpses that lay along the path
