I sat upon the shore one day
And gazed upon my child at play
I called to her ‘I love you best!’
To which she called to me in jest
‘Much better than the very best?’

‘Ah yes!’ I said most graciously
‘You think…’ she queried patiently
‘my little sister is the worst?’
Saddened eyes, and lips tightly pursed
‘NO, my dear!’… ‘You’re my favorite first

I just love the semantical word-play used in this one Satiate. And I am amazed at how fast you wrote this one.

Ain't it amazing what you can do when you don't over-analyze something?

Alicat, who just knows that he's going to Hell...
