UNCLE JOHN, he makes me tired;
Thinks 'at he's jest so all-fired
Smart, 'at he kin pick up, so,
Ever'thing he wants to know.

I have a lot respect for the great Poet, Paul Laurence Dunbar. He is a very special and intelligent Poet.

It's a shame that so many of the good poets, lived such short lives. That consumption and mental illness claimed more than there fair share.

Thanks to the Almighty God: I am not mentally sick. Maybe when I'll be a good poet, I'll be sick. When I'll be a great poet, I'll even be sicker. Lol. This is what I am talking about. I'll always be fine.

Loved reading the story in its diction. Little hard to understand some words but getting a hang of its sweet rhythm.
