POSTSCRIPT TO DORA
In the poem lower down on the list, Dora , Roger and the twins live unconventionally. In fact, some folks might think they are odd. But they do not hurt anyone, and they are not hurting themselves. That's a good thing!
It is important for all human beings to define themselves. In this poem, Boe Jimminy Blig chooses how he wants to live. A baboon thinks he is 'nuts' because Boe is so unconventional. Boe teaches the baboon a thing or two.
