By Andrew R. Duckworth
Someone told me I was dumb,
And, as an experiment, I believed them.
I went home and believed I was dumb.
I took note of everything I did
While I was believing I was dumb.
I watched a bit of TV.
I slept so hard, so sound,
You couldn’t wake me for anything,
Just hibernating like a forest animal.
I woke up.
I went to work.
I recorded the data.
Come to find out, I might be dumb,
But I’m smart enough
To keep going on with my life.
