"There are two things that I know for certain. One. Bert and Ernie are gay. Two. You are not gonna die a virgin. Not on my watch"-Dean Winchester

"Men are more ready to repay an injury than a benefit, because gratitude is a burden and revenge a pleasure"-Tacitus

all talk, just grumbles
Rough and tumble,

addressed, just mumbles
Rough and tumble,

speaks, but bumbles
Rough and tumble,

rises, but crumples
Rough and tumble,

fights, but fumbles
Rough and tumble,

struts, then stumbles

Rough and tumble,
Took a tumble
All a jumble

Now she’s humble

The author's comments:
One night while I was working on another poem, I heard the phrase "rough and tumble" from the evening news. My mind immediately whirled with possible poems. Through some evolutions, it eventually became the poem it is today.
