Books, Books, and....more Books !
Which one changes the way I look ?
How can I be a mouse amongst men ?
I was one of them, way back when !
Page upon page I turn and scan,
Not a one has helped me become a man.
What have I done to deserve such a fate ?
My previous time here, I thought I was great !
Wait, wait, maybe....maybe that's the key,
Possibly what did me in, was pompous vanity ?
Maybe for me, no such book exists,
Only behaviors written down upon a list ?
