Named Larry

(a modern nursery rhyme)

i know a man named larry
who doesn’t take his meds
and sleeps in cemeteries
among the bony dead
he hasn’t all his teeth
but wit he has aplenty
and plays among the quick
who think him merely mental
and notice barely give
to larry’s passing life
or ever wonder if
he had been once an “i”
and not a rag clothed it
named larry
