Here He Is Again - Poem by Robert Kirkland Kernighan
Did you ever try to dodge a man
A man you did n't like ?
You can't escape a man like that :
He 's the man you always strike.
He comes with open, outstretched paw ;
He smiles you 're filled with pain,
And in your soul you whisper, ' Pshaw !'
For here he is again !
On island, park or crowded street
He seems to bubble up ;
Where'er you go that man you '11 meet,
And aloes fill your cup.
He grabs you with his hated claw ;
His gall is cool as rain ;
Your stricken spirit whispers, ' Pshaw !'
Lo, here he is again !
