So certain in their belief
They have a Story to tell,
and the Wit to tell it.
So gifted in their ability
To capture with their plain Words
What many have seen but none have written.
So Fearless in their bravery
To reveal secrets about themselves,
That you do not have the courage to write.
William's Whimsical Words:
It isn't easy to strip naked in public when you are not one of the Beautiful People.
