Collected Free Verse #1 I'm Practically Perfect I'm practically perfect in every respect. I haven't a flaw you could ever detect. As soon as you know me I'm sure you'll agree there's no one around who's as perfect as me. I'm handsome and rich, with a generous heart. I'm funny, and charming, and totally smart. At school, in my classes, I only get A's. I'm also athletic in so many ways. My clothes are expensive. My hair is just right. My teeth are all straight, and they're shiny and white. I'm practically perfect. I'm sure you could tell. And, oh, did I mention? I'm humble as well. --Kenn Nesbitt
