THE LISTENER

HE WAS THE LISTENER…NEVER SAID A WORD
PEOPLE WERE JUST HAPPY…THAT THEY WERE HEARD
THEY NEVER ASKED HIM…HOW ARE YOU
TELLING HIM STORIES…THAT SOMETIMES MADE HIM BLUE
MAKING COMMENTS…ABOUT PEOPLE HE NEVER MET
EVERYTIME THEY SAW HIM … IT WAS A TET-A-TET
VERY UNHAPPY WAS THIS MAN…WHO PATIENTLY LISTENED
HE NEVER OPENED HIS MOUTH…IT WAS NEVER CHRISTENED
NO ONE CARED ABOUT HIM…THAT WAS CLEAR
THEY ONLY WANTED…FOR HIM TO HEAR
NONSENSE AND BACKBITING…COMPLAINTS AND DESIRES
HE WAS REALLY GETTING ANNOYED…HIS EARS WERE ON FIRE
VERY CALMLY ONE DAY … HE JUST SPOKE
AND SAID TO HIS FRIENDS … YOU PEOPLE ARE A JOKE
YOU TALK ABOUT EACH OTHER…EACH DAY
THEN ACTING LIKE FRIENDS…IN YOUR USUAL WAY
PLEASE STOP TELLING ME … WHAT NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR
YOU’RE MAKING ME SICK … BENDING MY EAR
FROM THIS DAY FORWARD … NOW LISTEN TO ME
DON’T TALK TO ME ANYMORE…I WANT TO BE FREE
THE MAN WALKED AWAY…CAUSED A BIG DITHER
NO ONE TALKED TO HIM…DIDN’T CARE IF HE’D WITHER
HE REALIZED …THEY WERE NOT HIS FRIENDS
FINALLY HE WAS HAPPY … HE SPOKE IN THE END
