Now You'Re Wishing For A Man You Never Had - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Oh Boy,
Why did you do her wrong?
When you knew she had your back,
All day long.
You must be taking,
Some ill-advised medication to do that.

And Girl,
Why did you let him do it?
Aint that much love in the world,
To be taking that crap.
Don't let him lower your elevation.
You should have left him on the curb,
To trot his own tracks.

And Boy,
You better get your head together...
With a putting of those games you play,
Away...
Where you said you began to pack your toys.
If you wish back what you nearly destroyed.

'Do I wish you two back together? '

And Girl,
You wished with him kids?
You shouldn't have made a wish like that...
But you did.

Well...
You've got them!
And...
Alone on your own.

You wanted 'your' babies!
And a Boy that's not grown.

Well...
You've got them!
And...
Alone on your own,
Wishing for a man you never had.

You wanted 'your' babies!
And a Boy that's not grown.
Now you're wishing for a man you never had.

You wanted 'your' babies!
And a Boy that's not grown.
Now you're wishing for a man you never had.
