theres a boy there in my mirror

he’s called the bearded man

he’s vague and vain and quite morose

infantile when he can


works only when he has too

try get him out of bed

gets words mixed up, can’t drive a car

refuses to be led


the boy thinks he is clever

the man knows he is not

arguing this over

is this manboy’s lot
