No doubt they could solve it all
I fwe'd but listen to their squall -
I'd like to unlearn diffidence,
Show them I am just as smart.
Where'd they get the confidence?
A dick is not a thinking part.
I’m used to being thought amusing
Right now I see I’m not
Is this because I’m not amusing?
Or am I running too fast for your thought?
The bookstore's getting set for Christmas,
Decked in wreaths of red and green -
But if they checked their Advent calendars
They'd find it's not yet Halloween.
Sitting in the theater at a show
I marvelled at the ballerina's leap -
Or would have, but in truth I found it slow
And had by that time fallen fast asleep.
