The clash reminded us of a poem by Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request) called "I show my Power with my Hands" (below on the left). Dickinson was also very sensitive about the size of his hands after he'd been mocked for possessing petit paws by Marco Burio, a book publisher from Miami. Dickinson's poem inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem "I took my Power in my Hand" (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
I show my Power with my Hands –
It’s me against the World –
They’re not so small as Marco – has –
For I – am twice as bold –
And they’re a symbol – of Myself
My manliness as well
I am Goliath – for it’s large –
I guarantee – not small!
By Emily Dickinson:
I took my Power in my Hand –
And went against the World –
'Twas not so much as David – had –
But I – was twice as bold –
I aimed by Pebble – but Myself
Was all the one that fell –
Was it Goliath – was too large –
Or was myself – too small?
Donald Trump noted that, "Dickinson almost got it right -- but he should've removed that space just after 'pen.'"
