Ode to Mister Bags

October 10, 2012
By Tom Baideme - August 2012 , Westfield Republican / Mayville Sentinel News

Mr. Bags, what do you have

in that bag you tote around?

What else do you have to show of life

that emulates the things you carry?

We've seen you with your pad and pen

and watched you as you bide your time

enthroned on benches in the park

with your bag of life beside you there

And daily seen you at your chair

at your local kitchen de soup

with a glass of water to take your pills

and meter to see how sweet you are

And there enjoy a cup of decaf Joe

awaiting for the fare de jour ...

a goodly plate of what's in stock

that's been prepared for all who attend

Then maybe get a bag to go,

to dine again some later time

when you have a chance to reheat

at night upon the holy light

Then to scurry like semi-fox

across the lawn and traffic lanes

out back in the waiting den

to medicate and sleep, then start again
