He Who Laughs Last

I remember Dominick and Eugene

The two meanest young uns

Ever to attend St. Gabriel’s.

They beat up on me daily.

I’m a great artist.

They take great pride in

Their swimming ability ,

Each one fancying himself

Quite a Champion

So one day I painted,

On the floor, a perfect replica

Of a swimming pool.

Diving board and all.

I invited everyone I knew

From St. Gabriel’s to watch

As both these monsters

Prepared to dive into the

Supposed pool.

The moment of truth

Had, at last, arrived.

Each one plummeted toward

His just deserts.
