I met a man upon an old mule
who challenged me to a mental duel,
but did this man make a mistake,
for I was clever, not a fake!

I met a woman on a horse
who wondered if I’d stay the course,
but her concern was overrated,
for I stayed longer than I stated.

I met a small child with broken toys
who was teased by other girls and boys;
who wondered if I truly cared,
or if I only stopped and stared.

There are many people in my wake
who wondered if I were true or fake
and I hope that most of them had found
that if things were tough, I’d stick around.
