Was that out loud?

My mom taught me manners –

or sure tried to.

“Judging others,” she said,

“we should not do.”

I listened, I promise,

and sure wanted to

follow her example

while I grew.

But when you read your fortune

describing you

and it said you were loyal,

generous, and true –

hiding my surprise was

more than I could do

and before I could stop

I asked, “Who knew?”
