Do More

When I sailed with a sailor
She out-sailed me.

When I danced with a dancer
He out-danced me.

In fact,
Every time I do with a doer
They outdo me.

It’s not because they’re smarter.
Not that their brains work harder.
It’s because they’re doing
All those things that I’m not doing
When all I’m doing
Is thinking.
