A Very Good Person 5-17-06

.
I should say you're a very good person,
Your countenance proves you are real;
But under that mask of a smile,
I'm really not sure you can feel.

I should say you're a very good person,
For you give to the sick and the poor;
Though you think of yourself very highly,
I'm sure without debt you'd give more.

I should say you're a very good person,
Your love and compassion are vast;
You are your most favorite of persons,
While you put all the rest of us last.

I should say you're a very good person,
On Sundays I see you in church;
If I don't really think that you're perfect,
I'll continue more years of research.

I should say you're a very good person,
Your intelligence makes you a whiz;
So I won't tell you all about Jesus,
Because you know all that there is.

I should say you're a very good person,
There's nothing that you can do wrong;
And if I could read all about you,
I know that the book would be long.

I should say you're a very good person,
But it'd probably all go to your head;
So I'll just say good bye for the moment,
But think "and good riddance" instead.
