Johnny Be Good, Please
Johnny is adorable, small
For his age, which is twelve,
And cute as a bug with
His blonde hair falling over
His forehead, gracing
His innocent blue eyes,
Long lashes, and ready smile.
So cute. I have a wonderful photo
Of him and Joanne sitting
Side by side, outside on a
Picnic table on a beautiful day,
Matching expressions, both smiling,
Both with middle fingers extended.
Johnny will get off this ward.
He is too clever by half.
He will go far. His charm, his wits,
His gray matter, his looks, will make it so.
He will seduce his way to success,
And we will look back and say,
I knew Johnny when he was just
A fresh-faced boy on ward twenty-four.
For now, he owns the place.
It is his personal fiefdom, and we,
All of us, on both sides
Of the glass, are his minions.
