THERE’S A NEW KID IN TOWN
So, what about this new kid, what’s she got to show?
Where’s she from?
What’s she done?
They say she’s got a stone for a heart.
Takes no prisoners.
Well, I don’t think she’s so much!
No? Why not then?
I just don’t see …
SHHH – here she comes
“Hey. What’s the buzz? I see you all huddled over here looking and whispering like a bunch of worker bees. You waiting for your Queen? HA! Well here I am. You have all these questions, you think you want to know. All right then, have a seat kiddies and I’ll scratch your itch.
It don’t matter where I came from, what matters is that I’m here. You don’t know if you like me? Do I look like I need a friend?
I am every man’s dreams and every woman’s envy. I can out last, out talk, walk the walk and run circles around the lot of you before you can realize I took a step. If it’s been done, I did it, been said, it came from my mouth.
I don’t bleed, bruise or suffer. I get what I want and throw away more than you’ll ever have. I’m leaner and meaner, more clever and wiser than your little minds can comprehend.
I don’t bluff, I don’t run. I never cry and I never hurt. I can whip your tale and leave you bawling for your mama’s – all of you.
There’s only one thing I want from you and I want to know it now."
Uh…umm, well what’s that?
Where’s Kindergarten? I need to meet the teacher and get my desk assigned to me.
