Aussie Mick

Poem By Francis Duggan

I know.
I know.
You have gone out of your way,
To disrespect my efforts.
With a discrediting of my abilities.
And 'still' you feel you have failed.

Come on!
Pull yourself together.
Would it help you at all,
If I revealed I've been aware of this...
From the very beginning.
And I was trained to keep my eye,
On people like you?

'You have? '

Yes, of course.
Here is what you do.
Do you see those obstacles over there?

'Yes! '

I have yet to approach them.
I will turn around and close my eyes.
And you put them on my path!

'You promise not to look? '

I wont.
I operate on faith alone!
Go ahead.
I'll count to ten!

'Could you go a bit slower? '

No problem.
Just tell me when you are ready.

And don't peek.'

Believe me...
I wont!

And the 29th comes soon.

Which liars deny,
They did or did not tell...
The bigger lie.
