The Crane Train To Mental Well-Being

Your friends, brothers Bryan and Joe
still argue over Cheryl,

Joe’s ex-fiancée who ran off with Bryan,
and who subsequently divorced Bryan,

and Frasier Crane, their doctor,
tries to resolve the impasse,

but makes it worse,
and you explain to me

the pros and cons of reconciliation,
and I only see the doom.

Here again we are confronted
by what rhymes with Nantucket,

but I know you’d think I don’t care.
I do, I do, suddenly

the Staten Island Ferry makes landfall,
and my reptilian reflexes seek caution.

I too would have fought for Cheryl,
blonde hair, blue eyes, long, long legs, no brain.
