I had to write a poem as part of my application. I share it with you here for fun...
It’s absolutely unjust, It’s shameful and it’s wrong.”
(My thirteen-year-old daughter has made Fairness her theme song.)
“It’s biased, unethical, it’s immensely foul!”
She started in this morning and continues now to howl.
I can’t get a word in edge wise; she is on a roll…
Global warming, civil rights – now she’s on to gun control.
Ever the zestful advocate. She’s passionate and tough.
Any thought of compromise is met with a rebuff.
But, when I suggest that with her sibs she try get along,
“It’s absolutely unjust, It’s shameful and it’s wrong.”
