There is a quaint little story
That I really do have to tell
About the amazing day I learned
My right hand works so well.

At writing, playing and pointing
It was so much better than the left.
I decided I didn't need the left one
Because the right one was so deft.

My left hand was so different,
I didn't listen to it's plight.
I just thought it was so awful-
Mostly because it wasn't right.

I blocked it out of daily use
And kept it from my plans.
I used my right hand only
Because it had so many fans.

And after parading for my right
Before all I had chance to meet,
My thoughts turned quickly downward
And I realized my two feet.
I saw at once there was a left one
To my own great horror and dismay
And decided it would be an outrage
If folks knew I went through life this way.

I hurriedly took my shoes off
And studied their grand design,
For, they really must both be right
If they wanted to still be mine.

I tried to heat the blasted rubber
And bend the left shoe to the right,
But left is left; I couldn't change it
Although, I tried with all my might.
So, in disgrace and true dishonor,
I threw out the awfully horrid shoe,
And promptly bought another right one

Since there was nothing I could do.
Then, I marched on so proudly
Knowing no one could see that left,
But when I noticed my left eye,
Man, I really felt bereft.
I just had to rush right out
And buy an eyepatch right away,
So that everyone around me knew
From the right, I'd never sway.

Well, my lefts got so upset
They organized and ran away.
Leaving me

-- half blind,
----unable to clap,
------and walking in circles
---------still this very day.

Heck yeah that left you! As a lefty myself, I take sides with my natural allies, your left! The right-sided conspiracy must be dealt with, once and for all!

However creatively inane this is, I can't help but wonder what would happen to my brain if I walked in the shoes of Divinity Rose for one day. WHEW! This brought me spasms of joy!
