Silly Ditty


Am I perfect? I think not!

What is it that I have not?

Honesty, integrity, vice or shame?

Some would say it’s all the same

Am I made of sterner stuff?

Or am I just a wee bit rough?

What is good and what is bad?

Could I be a trifle mad?

Who is to say who truly knows

what wondrous things my mind bestows?

To humankind everywhere,

I would say: My mind is fair.
