As to who I am, and who I’m not.
I’m a feeder of squirrels and other small creatures. I’m not a bully or a companion of crooks,
But, instead, I’m a dreamer and reader of books.
I have tears and laughter both close at hand,
And will share them with you, as you command.
A mixture of qualities, oh, not perfect am I!
I’m not a backbiter, bigot or betrayer,
Not petty, prideful, or a prevaricator.
But stubborn! A mule has nothing on me!
Offbeat, indulgent, inept, I can be.
I’m a planter of flowers and lover of prisms.
But not practical, like a mathematician,
Or useful, as a plumber or electrician.
I’m a constant cut up, screw up, bumbler.
A chatterbox, cornball, lifelong fumbler.
But, I was created by the Lord God above
And, flaws and all, I bask in His love.
