If you count your eggs
and they number eleven
it does not mean that someone
has stolen from your dozen
sometimes people make mistakes.

If you count your eggs
and they number thirteen
do you assume on impulse
that there was an attempt here at being mean
denying someone else their full count?



POEM: Copyright © Iz Mazano
Inspired by my mother who taught me not to assume.

I am writing 30 Poems in November to support the Center for New Americans which provides English language classes, education support and legal services assistance for immigrants in Western Massachusetts. Please see my campaign page to support this cause. Thank you, Iz.
