Big Joe - Poem by Isabel Lavender

Once by a star a beautiful bouncy baby was born
The blooming fields were full of the finest corn
Little Joe was a longed for heir in a noble line
The village celebrated and blessed him in wine

A prodigal son entered their life
A perfect future with no strife…

Time will tell he grew up a very handsome man
Succeeded in all and always with a perfect plan
Little Joe got only A’s in his expensive school
His mother adored her most precious jewel

A prodigal intelligent famous son
Life for him was always fun…

Times went by and Joe had to go to the City
His father’s pride but mum thought a pity
He ended up a notorious lover and flirt
Joe enjoyed the limelight and all the dirt

The most perfect prodigal son
Now his life all went wrong…

Some say it was too much whiskey and cocaine
No one really knows what went to his brain
Big Joe as he now was called in the town
He lost all senses and birthright crown

The prodigal son turned a cheat
Now all alone on the street…
