Public – Sheryl’s Daily Post

He was the shy type and introverted

Public speaking had him disconcerted

All eyes would be on him, watching

Had him clearing his throat ‘n coughing


He could do this, he admonished himself

This was an opportunity to prove oneself

Stepping up to the mic, he smiled warmly

Attempting to act calmly and normally


He broke the ice with jokes and humour

And even a faux pas or two and a blooper

Couldn’t deter him, he was on a roll

The perks of his company he did extol


They patted him on the back, said well done

Feeling proud and happy thought “homerun”

As he skipped and hopped out of the door

In fact he was looking forward to doing more
