“It is indeed a fortunate man”


In a pool of light at the Apgar scoring table
He struggled to breathe and when he was able
He gave a God Almighty yell
Like a bat outa hell
For “we come crying hither”,
As the King admonished Gloucester
Who was such a loser
In Goneril’s eyes.
But lemme say this.
It is indeed a fortunate man
That’s got an attention span,
And it starts in pain
Which we darenot disdain.
