Not Looking The Part - Poem by Francis Santaquilani

I like being

The Zachary Taylor

Of whatever I endeavor.

But unlike the great general,

'Old Rough and Ready',

Victory to me is secondary

To not looking the part,

Seeing the shocked faces

As I ride into battle after battle

Looking like a toad on horseback.

    a daring poem
    always so when looking deep
    into your soul
    with a smile
    liked the ending strong
