BEFORE GOODBYE


Cry for my struggles,
Long before they’re done,
Before I forget this troubles,
Let me know I’m not alone.

Think all about it,
Long before the tabloids,
Before my mind rests,
Let us think about me!

Shout my name before I fade,
Before I descend to Hades,
Before they fill in my ears,
Shout that I may hear.

Cast me in all of this light,
Long before my last rites,
Before my eyes are robbed of sight,
Let me see me shine.

Reward me for it,
Long before I turn to silt,
Before my hands go limp,
Let me know I deserve it.

Plant a tree for me,
Long before I cease to be,
Before you wail and cry,
Let me smile before goodbye.

Aside

When hustle turns to stable bustle,
Uncouth loud dissolves in elite subtle,
Strutting to hooting metallic muscle,
Don’t forget we ‘little boys’.

When plenty drowns scarce,
And true nature sleeps with airy farce,
Soon as it’s all about ‘class’,
Save a moment for we ‘little boys’.

Hero of Damsels in Distress,
Zoo keeper to Lovers and Mistress,
When ‘Mr Wallet’ does all the shouting,
Let your eyes caress us ‘nothings’.

Your cronies you now dub bothersome beggars,
Lazy believers in miracles and dreams,
Forget not you too once did,
‘Little boy’ now living the ‘Big Boy Dream’.

Gossip and whispers were overheard,
Talking about the now visible inevitable,
You have found others alike,
‘Seasoned Big Boys’ just how you like.

‘Big Boy’ your laugh is loudest,
laughing at ‘little boy’ jokes,
As you jest about this our tempest,
Forget not we ‘Little Boys’ also Dream!
