Me Thinking, B Thinking

I’m thinking of the letter “B” So close and yet so far It seems a bit unfair to me Let’s stop, reset the bar We’ve cast the “B” to status, poor With quality less pleasing Like something from a discount store A lack of something, teasing Yet think of how essential, I’m sure you will agree Just think how consequential, Not having a plan B It also fronts some of the Best And Brightest of our text So much more, I’ve not addressed But look what’s coming next! Perhaps this is somewhat a stretch But imagine Hamlet’s bray With the words he’d have to retch, To “A” or not to “A”

A fun one, Mike! A thinker this is! Because we are not (some deny) at all stellar...as great minds increase their chances with failure. Love this! A fave!
