This guy isn’t really a beauty,

He’s a man who sometimes shirks duty…

His depression is real

Effectively concealed,

Making decisions a little loopy.

Self-care a big bugaboo,

Neglecting helpful things to do…

Mega dry skin–

Lotioning has been

Something he rarely will do.

Some things like book delivery

Or consigned selling that he…

Asked about months ago

Move rather slow,

But the stuff moves occasionally.

If he hits a mental brick wall,

Not much will get done at all…

His model train

Needs work again,

But his strategy is to stall.

He is, however investing

In additions that sound interesting…

Like J. Paul Getty

He’s getting ready,

But the bank card really needs resting!

Often putting off the doctor,

His wife has to encourage and proctor…

His taking care

Of his needs there,

At times he’s been so mad he could have clocked her!

(But didn’t)

Eating and sleeping and working,

Self-care has more likely been shirking…

Driving, as it were,

Is tougher when blurred

And can’t see if anyone’s twerking!
