Exceptional, except …




Earl is Exceptional.

Earl is exceptional. Rules don’t apply.
In every circumstance, he’s the main guy.
Through thick and thin,
He’s gotta win.
Earl cannot see others passing him by.

Poor Earl. For it seems, though his belly be filled,
Still, he’s oblivious loved ones have chilled.
He packs his purse,
For better or worse,
Yet Earl has no clue his life labor’s unskilled.
