Calindae Knows Everything
Calindae knows everything
She is the expert of all
I sit next to her during meetings
For there might be group work
And I know she will grab the poster board
And the markers and do it her way
Such a relief
Knowing I have to do nothing
As she loves being the spokesperson also
Others try to get next to her too,
Sometimes there are a line of us.
Luckily, I am aggressive and
Not afraid to bare the teeth I have left
This is the advantage of being in your sixties
In a group of twenties and thirties who are easily frightened
This last meeting was rather sweet.
She yelled "I KNOW THESE! I KNOW THESE!"
Grabbing the fill-in-the-blank form from all of us who did not care.
No one else reached or glanced but she did not notice.
She wrote large, with a flourish.
When it came time to present everyone acted reluctant.
So I yelled out "Calindae has the answers!"
She gave me a look of love and began reading
Loudly and proudly.
"Sorry," the presenter said," You got one right. The rest are wrong."
Calindae spent the rest of the time arguing with the presenter.
Which means we did not have to fill out the survey
Because we had run out of time.
I will be racing to get this seat every week!
