Goodness

 

I’ve always tried to be good,

It’s very demanding

I’m a real hound for

                 Doing something for someone.

 

Hold coats,

             Doors,

                   Seats,

Get someone a job

                   Or something.

 

Open up my arms

Let someone cry on my shirt

But when I get my chance,

        I freeze completely

Some kind of shyness maybe

    I urge myself to do it!

 

Fling your arms wide

But it’s difficult to sacrifice yourself

                   When somebody’s watching.

 

So hard to be good

      For more than a few minutes

Like holding your breath.

 

 However with daily practice

  I have worked up to a

Whole hour.

 

  If nobody disturbs

           Me!

 

I sit all alone

   With my watch in

       Front of me.

 

Spreading my arms

          Again and again.

No trouble at all

         I am certainly best

                     When I’m all

                Alone!!!!!!
