Dear Editor:
In the letter to the editor on September 19, 2002, Mr. or Ms. "Not So "Minnesota Nice" Right Now!" may have meant "blarney" instead of "blimey" . . . . and I believe that is the King's English. As to his or her observation that "few of us (lawyers) would be so bold as to deny we have never made a mistake.", I totally agree . . . and in fact recently opined in poetic form on the subject, hopefully for the enjoyment of overburdened immigration lawyers who need a break from the pressures of practice before remanding them to the drudgery of everyday life in the office . . . . .


Erasers on pencils
Were made for a purpose,
To correct our mistakes,
Which are otherwise worthless.

We affix them atop
That long wooden tool
Which we use to create,
To suggest, and to rule.

We use them at times
When we say things on paper,
Or when we want to edit
A nefarious caper.

They're used without thinking,
Or to save us from harm,
And we use them at times
When we don't give a darn.

The rubber they're made of
Is red, blue or yellow,
They can be used by child,
A girl or a fellow.

They wear down quite easy
If you use them a lot,
But if you've never used one,
You're prob'ly a sot.

Now you all may wonder
Why I'd write this poem
About an eraser that
I've never known.

But this I will tell you,
In my life before,
I've used quite a few . . .
Now I'll say no more.
