Piano Boy (In Tribute To Tim Burton And Roald Dahl)
Harold and Betty, a nice couple I’m told,
Adopted a boy, just seven days old.
This perfect arrival, so rosy and sweet,
Gave Harold and Betty a family complete.
However, their joy was soon to be tried,
As this perfect arrival, never once cried.
A blessing you say, what more could one ask,
Indeed, rocking a child is an odious task.

When you’re very young you don’t see the need for it.
When you’re a teenager you fight it and them succumb to long periods of it, often for days at a time.

When your'e fifty you use it to regret all the things you have not done.
