A Famous Student

Yes, I remember Hannibal.
A voracious reader with a huge
appetite for learning.
Devoured everything he could
get his hands on.
We differed just once
and only because he had a bone to pick.
He ate his heart out
when I told him he wasn’t suited for
Early Childhood Ed.
It’s been gnawing at me ever since.
