Once Upon A Time

once upon I had four legs
I Walked on fours like Garfield my cat
there was a time I carried a lavatory
tucked gently between my thieghs
there was'nt any need to move a muscle
I had milk kept within my reach
and the callabashes never dried out

at that time I was self-centerd
I only thought of my own feelings
loudly I expressed my grievances
that would be directly considerd as a decree
At that time I was a noble
even though my family was'nt royal
working never crossed my mind
it was an alien word I had left behind
and my life was a terrain of fun fair

All this fame and glory drifted with time
have lost the art of walking on fours
not unless I want to be called a mad man
I have to work to attain any glory
to make decisions without hurting those around
for I am a fully gown maggot

    Wow... reminiscent of some family members who expect a free ride and then finally realize it's time to wake up and get a life... still pondering some of the lines, especially the last one :)
