The Cousin

A perversion there be 

a cousin of mine  he be 

known for his humour 

 takes life easy

 well into the eighties

talks with an alert

 cordial to all around 

 goes into a mood 

 throws tantrums all around

 if anything goes amiss

be it trivial or great

 odd is his move 

 an embarassment  to all 

 mostly to his wife of long

he is out of home for a while

 Poor old soul! feel sorry

 as little  adjustments could make 

a difference untold 

 that be not to him alone 

 also to the kith and kin

 who would have to bear with him

 for another few years might be.
