sad boy

he had a party
and nobody came
the next day was sunday
went on all the same

he wasn’t too ugly
old folks said he’s cute
brown faced & round
thick glasses played flute

light in the loafers
with wrists giggly limp
whistling & clumsy
a daydreaming wimp

he sent out the invites
they said they’d all come
his mother bought streamers
and drank all the rum
