“REQUEST OF THE BACHELOR BOY.” a poem, a.k.a.: “Little Tom Needs A Mom.” Oct. 14, 2019 (MoonY DaY)

He made it HERE to EArth on TIME. He’s NOW included inThis glorious? rhyme;

His request: “CookForMe; I need a little food; Alphonse, please, a meal if you woould,

For ME because ‘I DON’T WANT TO;’ YouClean&Cook, ifYou’reAfriendWho’sTrue.”

Then, ALsaid: “There’s a name for THAT; it’s called A WIFE,

And (s)he will totally (and wonderfully) order your life;

She’ll cleanYourHat AndClock; [it’s]WorseThan[A]prison,

So, please GOOD FRIEND, please DO lis’en:

IF a wife’s too much, whatAboutAgirlFriend?

But, STILL Awife you might ‘getInTheEnd.’ “

“I don’t wanna drive, so you give me a ride, For I have values and I have my pride,

And I’ve places to go, and you have a car,

AndYouCanCookForMe&CleanForMe; I WANNA GO FAR,

Far from responsibilities LIKE: preparing meals;

I LIKE LIFE THIS WAY; I like me good deals,

And it’s a good deal to exploit and use other people,

And I like to prayUnder EACHhappyChurchSteeple,

Praying to GOD for a life that is easy; I am a bachelor, being carefree, so breezy.”

Of course, at “the root,” we all just want MOM, Cooking & cleaning for “little ol’ Tom.”

“I like to beTOMtomTHE’bachelorBOY:’ Homecooked meals & playing with every toy;

I wanna be looked after; IS THAT OK?” “Sure, Little Tom, but you might have to pay,

By takingAlittleRESPONSIBILITY (a little, at least) most every day.”

“Well, that’s a bit much; I just wanna play!

And, when I wanna sleep, I’mJustGonnaSleep right nice.”

“Well, good luck with that, Tom, but you might just think [about this] twice.”

[OF COURSE, WE ALL NEED SOME HELP; I’M NOT SAYING WE DON’T,

But HowMuchIsTooMuch? AfterSoMuch[Abuse] mostPeopleWon’t

TAKE ANY MORE OF OUR SELF INDULGED SPREE;

Yeah, I know we’re all lazy; I’m sure WE’LL ALL AGREE,

That ‘given an inch, we loveToTakeAmile,’

But dependingUponEveryoneForEverything WILL NOT MAKE US SMILE,

For at some point, most people WILL SIMPLY AVOID YOU.]

“LONELINESS SUCKS; you CANhelp some, Tom too;

You can help yourself BY HELPING OTHERS,” I say;

“Try It; youMIGHTlikeIT a little anyway.”

We’re all in THE CHOIR, and you’ve got to CARRY OUR PART;

AT LEAST DO OUR BEST. OK? Come, let’s all start,

NOT trying to give TOTAL CARE FOR US to ev ery one;

For instance, doing our OWN COOKING, it MIGHT be a little fun,

To cook for ourselves, to give us something to do.

Remember: “Little TOMtom We REALLY DO loveYOU.
