Perfection is phoney.
Imperfection is real.

Perfection earns us money.
Imperfection earns us love.

No one wants to be around perfection.
When we are imperfect others show affection.

Depends on what we want.

Perfection--- phoney and rich
Imperfection----real and poor.

Barbara Goodhew, you've did it again! Your poem "Perfection" is nicely written! I like the way you write your poetry as a life learned lesson! It's kind of like "watch out" or "beware" Pefection may not be the best thing! I really, looooooooooove it Mrs. Goodhew! Keep up the outstanding work!
Hip, hip, hooray!, hip, hip, hooray!
