the Boy and the Chair

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.

"HEY!" said the boy named Pete
to the chair. "Why'd you take my seat?"
"i got tired, so i had to sit."
said the jaded chair to Pete.
"Being sat on all day is no fun."
"i thought that's what you were made to do?"
said Pete, sweating in the hot sun.
"well yes" the chair in his bravado
said. "but my time being sat on's done.
from now on, i do the sitting down."
"But, were will i sit?" said Pete with frown
on his face, weary to the bone.
"Well" said the chair "either you stand
on your legs, or you sit on your ass."
Pete, so tired he could not stand
chose to sit on his ass.
