by Sylvia Stout

Check your facts and figures twice

always look straight-

never left or right…

from so high above

being right fits like a glove.

what afflictions your opponent suffers

at the hands of his own inadequacies,

as you relish your convictions!

well versed are you, it seems

in all of life’s intricacies…

a word of caution a twig may lend:

you’ll surely break without a bend.
