Tongue In Cheek - Poem by TSOHGEHT SHEEHY

Sat back and imagined a world without me,
and realized what a shitty thing that would be.
Now before you keep reading,
understand that this is all tongue in cheek.

A world without me?
Would be very less amusing.
Although a world without me;
would have a lot more beer to drink.
If that's a good thing! !
But a world without me;
just doesn't seem fitting.
Not at all right!
I'm the calm in the storm,
your peace of mind in the night.
My laugh is infectious,
and my charm ostentatious.
I'm a pretentious flatter.
A long winded chatterer.
I think very highly of myself,
but not a bragger.
My shower singing is amazing,
I'm just lucky the neighbors
aren't complaining.
I'm a good dancer.
A fleet footed prancer. Yikes! !
Fair warning has been issued.
I'm fun! I'm lazy! Hardworking,
and definitely crazy.
I'm loyal! I'm friendly!
Over flirtatious; I hear I can be.
Never the life of the party,
but when it gets wild
you can bet I'm the agitator.
So life without me!
Come on how dull would that be?
Who would lead the Chiefs
and Royals to victory if not me.
How would this town
keep the racial harmony in stride
if I wasn't here parlaying with both sides.
I'm that little angel on your shoulder
whispering in your ear.
It's not my fault you didn't listen
but it's only a bump in the road.
I still got your back!
Get up off your rear!
So let it be declared!
That life without me;
