‘pop goes the weasel’

I was never about being perfect
because
that’s a trick I can’t do,
perfect is when you’re size nine, but you
fit in a size eight leather shoe and
perfect only becomes so when you want it
but
don’t even know.
So,
near enough is good enough
and that’s good enough for me,
if I can’t do the perfect trick
then perfect
I’ll not be.
