Read Me by Lin Nelson Benedek

Read Me
Read me loud
Read me like a
Read me cover to cover
Read my lips
eyes, ears and hands
Don’t believe everything you
Read and re-read me
Read me in bed, on a bus,
On a train
Speed read me and read me slow
Read me every day of the week
Don’t judge me by my
Don’t put me down
