Seasonal Friend: A Poem
Today a precious and welcome guest
as if you finally got your deserved turn
but don't call tomorrow not to be a pest
maybe it's the time for something to learn.
Seasonal friend, like disposable tissue
serves a purpose to be quickly dropped
after relieving someone's personal issue
something not started suddenly stopped.
Like a tossed and still burning cigarette butt
and swearing now never to be anyone's fool
but look, that's something you already forgot
for here again you're flunking at same school.
Being as sort of human battery recharger
you make them walk again, maybe even run
but needy souls don't turn into anything larger
so just be always satisfied with that temporary fun.
Well, call yourself an apple, orange or pear
but always wait for your season to come
in the meantime pretend you don't care
as long as you see it just a little dumb.
