World Weary Baby

Another re-post with tags so it actually might get read


Just met a world weary baby

Sitting in his pram

Too much experience

For his life’s short span

Sat there looking

Like a really old man

Seen it all

 Didn’t give a damn

 Didn’t like the fuss

Or need a plan

 Wasn’t going to work

 For the man

A world weary baby

With eyes that scan

 For any sign of wisdom

 Beneath my tan.
