Advice To My Son

It's important to be good at something.
The something is not as important
as the fact that you're good at it.
You could be a circus master
or a gynecologist,
either one's fine
as long as you're good.
Of course you could choose
to be a man, a good man.
Now that's something important.

  1. So the genie gives the kid three wishes... and for the first wish, the kid wishes for a million other wishes. That's the correlary to "choosing to be a good man". Of all things, being through and through good colors all else.

  3. I'll take that advice. And I'll pass it along as well, to two boys I know.
