Man About Town.

Poem By Barney Ballabay

MAN ABOUT TOWN.

HE IS THE TYPICAL 'MAN ABOUT TOWN'
SEEN STRUTTING UP or PONCING AROUND,
SOMETIMES CRAVAT, SOMETIMES WITH BOW,
BUT NEVER THE SAME TWO DAYS IN A ROW.

HE LIKES TO BE SEEN IN ALL THE BEST PLACES,
FROM GRAFTON LONG STREET, TO A BOX AT THE RACES,
HE`S LOOKING AROUND AND WAITING FOR EYE,
OR ANOTHER STREET WILL HAVE HIS BEST TRY.

HE FEEDS ON ATTENTION
NOR TALKS ABOUT TRASH,
HIS UNDERWEAR SILK,
HIS OUTERWEAR FLASH.

DEEP DOWN HE`S SO LONELY,
AND CANT HAVE A CHAT,
HE`S AFRAID HIS HIGH IMAGE,
ON THE STREET WILL FALL FLAT.

HE LOVES TB BE SEEN
AS MAN ABOUT TOWN,
HE IS IN EFFECT,
'THE CLOWN ABOUT TOWN'

Comments about Man About Town.

Fresh and interesting subject matter and you did it justice with a fine rhythmic write. Thank you.
I guess some people really are this shallow. thanks

Nan The Man And The Bucket

There was a man from Nantucket,
Who kept his cash in a Bucket,
His daughter called Nan,
Ran away with a Man,

Growing Pains & Growing Pines.

Two seeds were sown some time ago,
Both were nourished enough to grow,
A little at first,
Then bit by bit,

Kolbe; Bravery Beond Belief.

I hear the Cynics talk a lot;
I hear them night & day,
But, I never hear the mention of;
Maximillian Kolbe`

Auchwich Baby.

It`s a Boy; They cried;
The family: Friedles;
And Granny, She wept and
reached for her needles.
