20. a poem about having to 
defend yourself or someone else

Failure and Success

Having come from
the profession myself
I let them do their work.

Until he was pushed
down a staircase
by the Principal.

Letters exchanged
his failings noted
championship needed
I set about saving him
from their decisions -
labels - boxes - prison.

I let them do their work
with others from then
returned to my own.

His final results and life
now would shock them.
I'm proud of that.
