Going Public: Too Sensitive?
My friends all say I am too sensitive
Unkind ones get to me too easily
If there is anyone under the sun
More fragile than me I have yet to see
One and in give and take I am all give
How is it then that in the cosmic plan
Someone like me ends up a public man?
As others scrutinize and criticize
I agonize but then I realize
This is my lot in life it is my fate
To be an open book for all to read
And if you do then I appreciate
It and I hope we meet each other's need
Despite my sensitivity I still write quite a lot
I maximize what little I am given or have got
In predicting my obituary I can be specific
I am sure someday someone someway will use the word "prolific"
