Don’t doubt this

You can doubt many things
But don’t doubt this
Something simple
Practiced beyond perfection
It’s been a rerun for years
A best friend to cling to

Behind the podium again
You’re doing fine
Just don’t look at them
Or let them think you’re
Imagining them in togas
Say the speech, word for word
Nice glimmering eyes
Look away at the right moment

They’re not counting syllables
Just the rhythm of the room
Your smile complements the chandeliers
And bounces effortlessly off the audience

The last word comes knocking
Your doubt makes it a mountain
Smile once more
And conquer the giant rock
