Man Child - Poem by Shelley Williams

I don't want to change your diaper
nor put you in a crib at night.
I will not make you a bottle
at age forty nine it isn't right.

I am not your mommy
and your nanny I can't be.
I don't want to play your games
because it really bothers me.

You say you are behaving
but your inner child runs free.
Some think you are a pedophile
when you talk like you are three.

The internet hides the truth
and maybe I don't understand,
I have never met you
or got to shake your hand.

You overdo the role play
with such a creative mind.
You appear to be strange
and you are one of a kind.

I want to chat about life
and get to know you if I can.
please quit chatting baby
when you should be a man.
