"Tell all the truth but tell it slant-- Success in Circuit lies . . ." --by a Romantic poet "Circuit Lies are Misrepresentations of the Real World-- a world Children need to Know about, Emily." --by the Realist Poet No babe asks to be born-- Especially with fiends Waiting under the bed, Behind the closet door, Or down in the cellar Ready to creep into Needless nurseries dark. Dedicated with Respect for All Children Fearful of Bugaboos Unreal and Real Pleiades January 20, 2022 "Doc"
