A poem about John

John woke one morning without a wife
He wanted to know what happened to his life
So off he set to reluctantly write a journal
Good God, he thought, this might be atypical.

He wrote and wrote and found his mother was to blame
Same old story, oh what a shame
But he continued writing “Journal According to John”
And found some problems other than the maternal one;

Because John began to look at himself
In his own thoughts and actions he began to delve
His mother may have caused him a bit of melancholy
But he was the one who fell into folly.

So John began to turn his head around
For in the journal he had found a path of his own
He would move away from maternal condemnation
He was beginning to find his own salvation.

Journal According to John
A new process; a new plan.
