I’m Practicing Telepathy

by Kenn Nesbitt
I’m practicing telepathy.
I’m learning ESP.
I’m getting mental images
like pictures on TV.


I thought I’d pick your brain a bit.
I thought I’d read your mind
to get the answers to this test,
but now I’m in a bind.


I probed your thoughts and consciousness,
and now I guarantee,
we both are gonna flunk
because you’re copying from me.
