The Terrible Thing about Cindy

The Terrible Thing About Cindy

The terrible thing about Cindy
Is she packs a powerful punch.
I learned this yesterday at school
When I tried to take her lunch.

I had only meant to tease her,
To make her squeal and twist.
The last thing I expected
Was her calculated fist.

She socked me in the stomach;
She’s more than slightly deft.
And sent me stumbling to my knees
As she snatched her lunch and left.

After that I was quite sorry
I had tussled with a pro –
I wish my friends had told me
That she practiced tae kwon do.
