Inspired by my son's left-handedness and his use of his scooter with his left leg on the way to the park. Of course, it has nothing to do with my son or parks. LOL.

Kicking and screaming

I should warn you

she won’t go down

without a fight.


It’s the little ones

you have to watch out for--

I should know, I’M a scrapper.


And I’ve killed a man or two

in my day.

Justifiable homicide. Every. Single. One.


"Better a corpse than a ghost.”

I always say.


Besides,

when it comes to soul survival

left is never right.
