6 or 9

6 or 9

A Poem by DarkStar

Never underestimate the importance of perspective!

I saw 6 when you saw 9,
The d depends where you draw the line. 
And just because yours was forged from steel, 
Does not make my perspective less real.

And for you to be right, does not require me to be wrong. 
Like all the version of that one song. 
Each can and should be admired as art,
And not criticised for how close they are to the start. 

If I misinterpreted your intended desire, 
Remember quite clearly, there's no smoke without fire. 
As you are the one tasked to see me rise or fall,
Is the responsibility not yours, were you as clear as you recall?

If you think you are safe, would you ask for mercy?
If I was blind, could I tell the carpets dirty?
Don't completely judge a mistake, made without the right picture,
Just because you are right, doesn't make you any richer.

Author's Note

Got a low mark on an assignment in uni, as I misinterpreted the point of it - wrote this to express how I feel about it. Thanks as always!
