Hey mickey

I think I'm drowning

Do something damnit!

Don't just stand there on the shore

Don't just scream in silence while you wait


Why can't you move

Move for crying out loud!

Move and come to my rescue

Can't you see I need you?

Remember the commercial Give it to Mikey he won't eat anything? That is what I thought of when I read the title, but then I realized it says Mickey not Mikey. Sorry about that! It is a very good poem--I just had to get my mind wrapped around it. Excellently written! Damon

Looking at the title, I half expected some kind of rendition or spin-off of "hey mickey, you're so fine, you blow my mind, etc" thing, but what I found was a little more on key. Casual language and repetition for presenting a situation and an emotion, and done very well. Excellent stuff.
