Daily Prompt: Assumption

I must have heard

This particular word

Before the age of eighteen

I must have, for was keen

On words, what they mean.

But I wasn’t so clever

On my first job endeavor

When something I assumed

Was comically presumed,

And I learned the old tune

About the word assume.


The phrase supposedly originated by Jerry Belson: when you assume, you make an ass out of u and me. It is my own assumption this may be correct, but one should never assume.
