Poem: To Fear Him, or Fear For Him?

To Fear Him, or Fear For Him?
By Jeff R. (Fenny F.)

Time has torn all logic
It is scattered to the wind
I can find little trace
Of what a man he once had been;
I know no magic pill
Or a remedy that can cure
The monster that comes forth
When the arguments are sure.

I dream of distant lands
Of the castles in the air,
But Grandma doesn't like it,
And Grandpa doesn't care;
But the more the Earth revolves
The more I long for there
Leave this broken dream behind
Leave for the castle in the air!

Time has torn all logic
It is scattered to the wind
I can find little trace
Of what a man he once had been;
I know no magic pill
Or a remedy that can cure
The monster that comes forth
When the arguments are sure.

One day he said "It's warm,"
I said "Turn the air down more;"
But with all his good sense gone
It went from eighty-three to eighty-four;
I tried to tell him why
The scale goes the other way;
Another scar upon my heart
Is what I got for pay.

Time has torn all logic
It is scattered to the wind
I can find little trace
Of what a man he once had been;
I know no magic pill
Or a remedy that can cure
The monster that comes forth
When the arguments are sure.

I don't know what will please him
What his anger needs to soothe,
I've given up a lot
Though I'm very lucky too;
I stay away from dope
While others smoke unto the grave;
They drink themselves into the ground,
I have one glass a day.

I don't know why I bother him
Or why he cannot sleep;
While 'woofers are ablaze outside
I hardly make a peep;
Am I really bad for being here
And pecking at the keys,
While many of those I used to know
Are picking up disease?

It makes no sense to me at all,
I cannot comprehend,
Why we're torn so far apart
Or where to start the mend;
But even as bad as this sounds
I don't fear so much for me;
I worry that time eats his brain,
That even worse is what he'll be.

I fear him,
I fear for him
But know naught of what to do;
I want to try to help him,
But his verbal sting's so cruel -
"No good deed shall go unpunished,"
When it comes to him, it's true.

Time has torn all logic
It is scattered to the wind
I can find little trace
Of what a man he once had been;
I know no magic pill
Or a remedy that can cure
The monster that comes forth
When the arguments are sure.
