Darwin Henry Beuning

Rookie - 103 Points (29 July 1947 / Melrose, Minnesota)

A Worker Bee


You are expected to be
All things to all people

The Powers that be state:
'We are going to do this and we are going to do that'

My response to that,
'Is there a mouse in your pocket'

Because it is not we
It is me
