Little boy blue

Little boy blue,
 Learn to blow your own horn

Don’t be a hoe on sheeps meadow,
 Relying on cows for their corn.

Be strong for yourself
 Earn your own keep

But if you insist on
  Laying with cows

Take care of yourself
  and put aside my keys

And where is this boy that’s so afraid
 Of self and kin?

He’s asleep – having convinced himself
 Aesthetics matter most

Will you wake him? No, not I,
 For when I tried he surely cried.
