Narrator, Cane and Company

walk, slip, fall
now we’re talking tall
joke, snicker, grin
thru the play you’re in

the good thing that you’ve done
besides the A you’ve won
was to show to everyone
the world can still be fun

a dirty old man with a cane
we never know his name
a loose chick in a tub
seven months, watch out bub

a hit-man named Joab
who shot poor O.J.
a red-letter dancing A
who, in the end, loses her way

a god replete with cape
who we never see
a Goliath with a yell
that can knock over a tree

an old man that can’t see
says don’t look at me
a pair of Siamese not-twins
give support for their country

the old man stumbles thru his part
looks for a closet with a heart
old narrator man what do you say?
you know you’re only in a play

and for those of us who are lonely
a pretty lady shows us the way
grab a friend and get Siamese
grab for life, if you please

a knock-out with an orange
hits his target for a change
an old man who wants a pair
there’s broccoli in the air

and pardon me toots
but this closet’s a little crowded
and a man who feels nothing
feels nothing

    Some of this poem will all sound like nonsense to anyone who didn’t see the play, I’m afraid. I think I still have a copy of the play stored away somewhere which could at least give this meaning, but since I was only one of many authors I wouldn’t be able to publish it anyway. Here is my poem, though. I tried to edit as little as possible since everyone in the class got a printed copy of our play with my original poem attached at the end.
