POOR U

Whenever you’re feeling
unsure what to do

Then you know what it’s like
every day to be U

Who starts out one way
then turns ‘round halfway through,

no letter’s less decisive
or, maybe, more confused.

Perhaps U’s resemblance
to a horseshoe

Dragged U through the mud
so U’s ego got bruised.

And if U didn’t have
spare ego to lose,

Then U probably grew sheepish.
Imagine, wouldn’t you?

So if one day self-doubt
jams you up with the blues,

Think how hard it would be
if your mirror showed U.
