 that everybody knew
 enough to get invited
 to fancy dinners , too

 are sometimes known as nerds
 geeks, and dopes and avant garde

 I’ll go up to a podium
 put some papers down and glasses on
 and wait for everyone to be quiet
 then take a deep breath AND

 we have a poet who’ll do.
 Ladies and gentlemen,
 please give a nice hand to Maya Angelou !
 I wish I was a poet… :o[
