Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Three men on a park bench.
Upon a park bench one July
there came three men and one was Aye;
the other two were Old Myself,
and also Me, that Irish elf.

  (For Me is short and clover green
    who sometimes needs a go-between;
    he wears his ego on his sleeve,
    and loves the world of make-believe.)

When Aye looked Me right in the eye,
Me let a few choice phrases fly;
then Old Myself, so staid and still,
told Me to just sit back and chill.

Me looked to Aye beside Myself
and put some anger on the shelf;
then Aye just nudged Myself a bit,
so happy that the Me had quit.

Aye turned to Me and he thus said,
“Do you think I should  forge ahead?”
And then before Me could reply,
Myself began to speak to Aye.

“To me I think you should proceed,
for you are Aye and Me has need.”
“I am Myself and if it be,
I will aye-aye your words to Me.”

Then Me stood up and flashed an eye
directly at Myself and Aye;
“Don’t talk about me like I’m gone,
for me, myself, I think it wrong!”

  (The Old Myself is somewhat gray
  and has a very pleasing way;
  but he will not permit the Me
  to chide the Aye persistently.)

So Aye, Myself and even Me,
upon a bench for all to see,
discussed it all in voices three
yet it then changed remarkably.

“How goes it, Me?" I heard Aye ask,
while in the sun Myself did bask.
“Why, I am fine, Aye--having fun!”
Then Me, Myself and Aye were one.
