Campaigning for V.P.
of the Student Council
in the fifth grade:

I claimed to be half-horse,
half-alligator and a little attached
with snapping turtle

and have the fastest horse,
prettiest sister, the surest rifle
around Exeter.

I promised to pay attention
and do the best I could. Enough,
in those days, to get elected.
