    I Get Real Tired of Being Asked to Apologize For It

    A poem: I was once asked just what I believe in, And though I know I sounded out of touch, I told that person what I believe in, Knowing all the while, it wouldn’t matter to him much. I took off my hat, looked him in the eye and said: Sir, I choose to believe in...
