Healthy Peteeatrick Communication Books By Lithuanian/American Author Marc O'Brien

I am happy when

We are both in our romantic den

Playing like friends

You Barbie and I Ken


You ask

After we finish our performing tasks

We take off our dramatic masks

Worn for Kings and Queens

Royal requests we were assigned as a team

Where we entertain

For many and the one who always complain

On cruise ships

And places where we earn tips

Singing the blues

Making people happy, refreshed, and cool

But it is here

We have our cocktails and beer

Engaged in cheer

In love with my partner in life

Who publicly has been reported my wife

Let us have a toot as we roll our drum

Somehow on our private stage we won

Seen enjoying fun

And no need for audience applause when done

Now that we say goodbye

To our façade story telling lie

Where we tried

And through make up cried

Remember this

When I throw that mass marketed kiss

This one is for you

Confirming what I meant when I said “I Do”

May I inquire?

As we decide to retire

Anything to say?

On what we did for pay

But we were always together

You in silk I in my leather

Electricity in the air

Huge masses who seemed to care

Our honest inner thoughts we did share

During our theatrical affairs

I was everyone's dream girl

And you were the one who found my pearl

They said how lucky you were

To be with her

Now we quietly sit

Logs in the fireplace lit

Watching them burn

Reflecting on what we both learned

Traveling to many places

Seeing friendly stranger faces

Feeling secure on our base

It was here we built our talented case

About our union bliss

Conjured up by each other’s wish

Now it is time to assemble the collection

Of the poetic musical selection

Not thrown in the bin entitled rejection

Instead headline Greatest Hits of all

Sold down at the dime store inside the mall

As we stand tall

Let us both use the same milk shake straw

Before inscribing on the bathroom wall

Our friendship never did fall

Even know they no longer make the call

For us to be stars on stage during the Princesses fantasy ball
