We four boys, we four men, we four wards struggling
to live life rich and full make our way, we’re handful.
There’s poor Jack, caseworker, who must guide, push and pull.
Every day, something new mundane stuff stumps his crew.

Barry is best of friends. Ringleader is Wiggins.
Arnold with flashing lights, projection, polished plight.
Theater urinals, Corbin sends mixed signals.
Clara has just one word, “Just say no!” Ronnie’s term.

Norman loves all doughnuts, working hard, questions rough.
“How are you?” him dismays, he knows not what to say.
Love int’rest, Sheila girl, not Aussie, Norman’ world.
Little rat, a hamster, fear we crush Warren’s fur.

We’ve neighbors interact, Barry loves golfing act;
misses mom, she’s long dead, focus on Fremus deaf.
Klemper is SOB, heart so small eyes can’t see.

What we call home sweet home apartment in shadow,
shadow of a prison, walls, towers binds us all.
Matters not intellect, social skills or defect
our group home we do strive to create our best lives.

“Have a seat.” “It’s nice day.” Trivial in no way.

We can speak, we all feel, outside world’s still unreal.

Lucien Percival is my name, mind’s most dull.
There’s State Sneck, nemesis, Spiderman, Clark auspice.
We go round in circles when we speak parallel.
Don’t connect but we love, we’ll get by help above.
