On the Death of Mister Rogers (1928 - 2003)

by ern modern

A day just like any other day.
Why! we never did call you Fred.
That sweater, Neighborhood of Make-Believe —
When did I last see your spread?
And what will Mr. Speedy Delivery say?

King Friday XIII, will he
Be glad or hell-come-hither mad?
Tell me you never had intention
For Queen Sara's bed.
And what will Mr. Speedy Delivery say?

X the Owl, will he give a hoot,
move out, or just say god-damn?
And when will Henrietta Pussycat
Finally get hit by the tram?
And what will Mr. Speedy Delivery say?

Prince Tuesday and Lady Elaine,
Daniel Tiger, waiting to play,
''Would you be mine?'' you always sang.
Did they, like me, think you were gay?
And what did Mr. Speedy Delivery say?
