A Much Better Man - Poem by David Whalen

I am tall, handsome,
an outstanding lover
Athletic, slim,
a romance novel cover

I'm young, romantic
Humorous, fun, carefree
Admired, empowered
Wise, sage and debt-free

I'm charming,
Disarming, and
Healthy… and

Then I wake up…and in reality! !

I'm balding, short
Ugly, forgetful,
Dense, toothless,
Fat and forgettable

I'm boring,

I'm blinky and greasy
Stinky, and wheezy
And even I admit I'm
A bit of a creep

So my self-improvement scheme
Tis to nap a lot and dream
For I'm much the better man
…When I'm asleep…
