Fool Me Twice

Fool Me Twice

Charlie Brown and Lucy
Artist: Charles Schulz

 
Lucy tees the ball.

Charlie trusts her once again.

Charlie is a fool.

Though hardly in the haiku realm 
it fits the three-line style 
to write image…  
add emotion…insight…
count syllables.   
And we have expectations  
that the thought be fair and true.  
Here we may well question 
Charlie’s frame of mind.  
Perhaps he’s just a happy soul 
who lives a trusting life. 
I lived in the South. 
“She’s such a sweet thing,” 
was not a compliment. 
Charlie is a fool. 
 
Bonnie Marshall
