Poem for the day by Ken Mason

Left Hand or Right
Is there a real or just merely imaginary
Difference in those who use left hand or right?
Are all the righties more practical people and
Lefties artistic but more erudite?
The righties are often quite rude about lefties
Calling them ‘south paws’ or more derogatory, like a
Left-handed marriage to someone less noble than the
Right-handed partner’s so posh pedigree
Gone are the days when the left-handed children were
Forcibly driven to write with the right
Creating a stammer or other disorder, often
Lasting through life and creating a blight, so
Let us rejoice in the difference, if there is one
Lefties and righties join hands and with glee, hold
This, here, my right hand in your tiny left hand, and
Walk side by side keeping prejudice free
Left Hand or Right?
