  My Poems  

First Impression

A poem by Beverly Stock.

I value more than I condemn,

My tendency to bitch,

Because it helps me realize

How many I enrich!

They who have little in their soul

That links them to opinion,

Know no angst or self-control,

Who leave no “first-Impression.”

With sassy words, I’m glad to say,

While others “hem and haw”

I let loose a verbose array,

(And get thumbs up from all.)
