A Seasonal Friend: a Satirical Poem
Today a precious and welcome guest
as if you finally got your turn
but don't call tomorrow not to be a pest
maybe time has come for something to learn.
Seasonal friend like a disposable tissue
serves a purpose to be quickly dropped
after helping with other's emotional issue
something not even started before it stopped.
Like a tossed and still burning cigarette butt
and swearing never to be anyone's fool
but that's something you already forgot
for here you go again after flunking at that school.
This time you try harder to stick to that heart
as if proving to yourself that you are worth more
but again it turns out not to be so smart
as nothing is happening that didn't before.
Well, call yourself an orange, or an apple, or a pear
but always wait for your right season to come
in the meantime pretend that you don't care
as long as you see it just a little dumb.
