Mr. Melancholy

Mr. Melancholy

You know the one who's not too jolly

I called him the other day

Just to say hello.

He was feeling lost and sorry

But told me not to worry

He'd be happy soon enough

In a day or two.

He was forever feeling lonely

And would often say "...if only.."

I always try to make him laugh

Sometimes he does.

Not much of a drinker

He is quite the heavy thinker


Always thinking.

Often times I would tell him

To try and trick his cerebellum

Into coming out

For a bit of fun.

Most times he would just moan

Say he wanted to stay home

I would remind him

That's where the "lonely" is.

Sometimes he would come out

To join the little round about

He did enjoy himself

Really he did.

Yet it is always such a chore

To try to get him out the door

Always some reason

To keep him in.

Others have just had enough

Of this antisocial stuff

Most don't really care

One way or another.

I just hope to see him smile

If only for a little while

You tell Mr Melancholy
Laugh muscles need the gym
Else they'll end up atrophying
To me that's pretty dim. ?
