Poem: IQ for Me and You

I’ve got one, and you do too. The official name for it is IQ.

IQ too often stands alone, like a good dose of ole’ corn pone.

Looking at it alone is such a crime. Smart folks think it’s a waste of time.


What about feelings, motivation and hope?

Makes IQ old-fashioned, like that old lye soap!
