Character Traits

We march to our own ‘drummer’
And we are known as ‘Characters’
We’re unique and proud of it
Poets and know it
Mold breakers with a smile
Little and cute, big and bold
Nelly as pink ink
Got balls and a lot of game
Talent? We got plenty
Gumption is our middle name
We have no intention to ‘fold’
Got a tune in our hearts
A notion in our brains
Always armed with a come-back
When we’re down, don’t try to count
Us out because we’re gettin up
If we like you, you got a friend
Right up to the rough, touch and
Joyful, gotta shout, memorable ...
