Backseat Driver - Poem by Betty Bleen

What would I do if I didn't have you
You're so full of wisdom that you can see
All my faults and fallacies
And splay them out in front of me

What would I do if I didn't have you
To tell me the things I need to do
To chide me for those I didn't do right
To pick on me and start a fight

To tell me when to clean, how to cook
How much to eat, when to exercise
How long to sleep, how to drive...
Before I met you how did I ever survive

I wish I could turn you into a book
Share your wisdom with young and old
There must be others that need to be told
Who could benefit from your advice

They could keep you handy up on a shelf
Take you down if they need some help
As for me, more than anything else
I wish you'd keep your wisdom to yourself
