Freddie The Hamster Revisited
Michael P. Lefanto
They’re gonna leave me laying in my body waste
diapered in bed.
Waiting for the loser of the, no it’s your turn
I did it the last time argument, to come upstairs
and change me.
I’ll end up begging them,
to let me please sell the house
find a cheap nursing home nearby.
Dancing around the obvious reasons.
Use the argument.
I don’t wanna be a burden
They have their own lives
to worry about now
And they’ll smile those
twenty-three hundred dollar
straight teeth smiles of theirs,
insisting they love me I’m their dad.
and won’t hear of such nonsense.
And I will remember
Freddie the hamster,
dead in their room three months
skin and bones covered in maggots
waiting for whoever’s turn it was
to come upstairs and feed him.
