DON’T TREAT ME LIKE THAT!

DON’T TREAT ME LIKE THAT!

So many people remind,

Me in ways that do not seem kind…

Do I look like a goon

Where people assume

That I need help with my mind?

My wife, I understand,

She’s lived with me for a stand…

Of near twenty-four

Years and more,

She’s seen me in life’s demands.

I’m getting used to her,

But the rest, my anger stirs…

How dare they assume

I have too much room

In a mind that frequently whirrs.

So I’m absent-minded some,

That doesn’t make me numb…

I’ll remember in time

And make up my mind,

While hearing your fingers drum!
