any teacher, family, friend, professor
who tries to teach him left and right.
You see he knows that when we point out to his left,
it’s to his right – he’s certain, sure, - no use
to fight belief because we all become confused
and so we start to side with him, agree,
deranged, that left is right and right is left.
But if left were right, what would be left,
would blue be red and grey be white
and up be down if left were right?
Hokey Cokey, left arm in. All right?
