Call Me M

Written by: Carolyn Devonshire

Middle of the road
I have come to be called
Debate training in college
Did a number on me
Little gift from the team – T-Shirt
Embroidered with the letter “M”

Other schools’ teams thought it meant Monmouth*
Fooled they were

They didn’t understand
How carefully I researched
Each side of an issue

Run if you see big “M”
On her way to you
And prepare for verbal volleyball
Devonshire will find a lot to debate with you
