I remember being sucker punched once.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Someone disliked something I did.
But could not face me to confront.
Like most cowards who attack...
I was asked to turn around.
And then I was whacked!
I then was young.
I had learned some lessons...
But more that day had begun!
I have never been quite as stunned.
Sucker punching is a skill observed,
Delivered by those who are quick with the lips...
But lost without pretensions.
As they flaunt their bravery...
On the backs of those with nerve!
