Think Again-Mini Inquiry Poem

Think Again

Remember, his topics of conversation

are more important than yours.


I am a doctor, you are a nurse

Why must you think this should be in reverse

I’ve had more training, spent a lot more

And yet, you still feel superior


But, no matter

I will fly like a bird against the sun

crash through painted arcadias

show off my bold, strong wings


Despite ourselves.

Our kind multiplies  

we will realize, revolutionize, revolt

Before you can think twice

We shall by morning

Inherit the earth
