Short Man Syndrome – 14th August 2022

Always punching up
Impossible to keep down
Hyperactive bouncing
Like a rabid clown
Always in need of attention
‘Hey, look at me!’
Pushing towards the front
Just so he could see
He’s an annoying bulldog
Doing a stupid dance
What the hell are you doing
Pissing on my pants!?
He’s an annoying bulldog
Doing a stupid dance
Feeling sorry for him
So give him another chance


In a time of destruction, create something: a poem, a parade, a community, a school, a vow, a moral principle; one peaceful moment.

Maxine Hong Kingston
