Coming across the NPR airwaves,
And speaking with just as much confidence
as when I say:
Albrecht Dürer in German,
Jacobin and Girondin in French,
Brunelleschi and Boticelli in Italian,
Or Guangzhou and the Empress Dowager Cixi in Chinese,
Announced an upcoming story about the Key-Yoga River in Ohio.
And I felt better,
Knowing that even people on NPR,
Don’t know everything.

I love the flow of this poem and the conclusion is on point. Great job.
lol I got a giggle. I often laugh at the overly-conscious pronounciations.
Love it, Maggie! I feel the EXACT SAME about Albrecht Dürer.
