MAN


MAN
by Beth Williams


I never fail to marvel at
The treachery of man;
Nor how this clever diplomat
Achieves his cunning plan.

If he should want the chair you're in -
Without a trace of guile -
He'll ask if you would like a spin
In the countryside awhile?

What joyous words he's just announced!
You race him to the door!
But wait!  That man is now ensconced
In the chair you had before!

Maggie, Maggie how are you.
Here's hoping no news is good news.
Your fans await.

Maggie Moo and Joey, how are you today?
Guiness the Senior can't come out to play,
He's just bein' lazy an' sleepin' away,
So kisses from Auntie are comin your way!
