Can I Keep It ?
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

Deep inside this little head,
I found a thought
that others might dread.
I take it out and play with it,
I find it's pretty cool.
I'd show it to you ...
but you might think me a fool.

Einstein I'm not,
but I dare say,
I had an original thought today.

Who'd have ever thought
a new thought would be,
in the head of little ole' me?

I'll tuck it away
for another day.
I like it.
Can I keep it?

Marge, I know what it is!
But I won't tell anyone, promise!

Elizabeth, my friend -

The thoughts in my head
being read by another,
I find it quite alarming ...
but from my friend, Elizabeth,
I look to find it charming.

Of course you'd recognize
this little thought I had ...
but please keep the secret,
it's originality isn't so bad.

When I'm done with keeping
it all to myself,
I'll take it out
polish it ...
and place it on
Passions shelf.

For all the world to see,
it no longer will be
a little mystery ...
this original thought
that dwells inside of me.

But, for now ...
I like it.
And I'm keeping it.
