Trust

How do I prove that I'm not like him?
How does one prove the “notness”
Of anything?  He would get drunk
And then strike you.  I haven't.  I won't,
But how long do you need to be sure,
And do I have the patience to wait
Until you can prove your sort
Of notness to me?

The eternal question now, isn't it? Best just to move on.
