As the cliché goes
and everybody knows
we dislike someone because of
what we see
in him or her in me.
The President serves that purpose
to a T, tittle de (not Tweedledee),
I would think, for most everybody.
Though, the Donald may be
both Tweedledum and Tweedledee.
Unfortunately, I do see both in me.
The Franciscan wrote,
“Francis knew there is enough for everyone’s need,
but not for everyone’s greed.”*
And that’s one reason
why I’d rather see
Jesus in me.
Even Francis would fit to a T,
too, tittle de (not Tweedledee).
