To A T, Tittle De (Not Tweedledee)

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).

*from a meditation by Richard Rohr
