Person of the Day: Jean-Luc Picard
It wasn't my fault I had to be so hard on Riker when he first boarded the Enterprise at what we thought, then, was the edge of the universe. And to my credit I showed him a sensitive side when I said I'm scared of kids and I needed his help in looking like a likable person. I hope he never repeated that. I hope he never told anyone. That would be super embarrassing. And completely against everything I told him right before I told him about the kids. Ohhh, tough Captain Picard, they'll say, I hear he's scared of children. See, I must maintain that I'm hard-headed, ignore the almost pun about my baldness, but also a demeanor that makes people think there is something charming about me. Maybe they like my humble facade. That could be it. Right?
I'm going to try and write a poem, dumb or not, each day on a random person. A person of the day. These are unedited and posted right after being written.
