Silly Ol' Man In The Moon - Poem by Candy Elvis

There was an old man he lived in the moon
He was so bored he had nothing to do
One day he peeked over the edge
Lost his balance and fell off that ledge
He fell and tumbled and came down hard
And landed right there in my back yard
I went to see if he was okay
Helped him up, waited to hear what he'd say
He said, 'Funny me landing in your yard.
You're the one whose heart's so hard.
You scowl and laugh at my light.
You're afraid to go out in the moonlight
and stand in it in some lover's arms.
You know it wouldn't really do you much harm.
I think it's what you may need
and now if you'll excuse me, I have to leave.'
I stood, watched as he walked away
pondering all the words he did say
and I thought about them day and night
and decided he may just be right.
But the only thing he forgot to say to me
How to find a lover who's in love with me
