Ain’t Too Proud to Brag
Through relations with a mass of disinterested silence,
I brought a brand new bundle of sound into this world;
One quite heavy and damaging in nature-
My body will never again hold the same shape.
I tried my best at directing its movements
Towards more proper forms of expression,
To no avail, of course; though I was never disappointed.
It grew into its own best image,
A sturdy structure serving the souls of the hearing impaired-
My original labors are well worth it, still…
