Three Hard Words by Amos Russel Wells

He can memorize long orations,
And regards the work as play;
His masterful dissertations
The clearest of thought convey.

His speeches are never the weaker
For lack of a suitable word;
In fine, he's the readiest speaker
You prohably ever have heard.

He never was known to stutter,
His voice is vibrant and strong;
Yet three words he never can utter,
Those three little words, "I was wrong."
