"Just like me,
They long to be
Close to you. . ." - The Carpenters

I used to be very popular.

People would wake up calling my name, smile when I entered a room, beg me not to go . . .(as they held on to my leg!)

Ah, but those days are over.

Now, I wake them up and they tell me to go away.

When I walk into a room, they stop talking and wait for me to leave.

They only seek me out to obtain permission, money or a referee.

"Mom, DIDN'T you say I could use the computer?"

"NO! She told me it was MY turn, MOM!"

Somehow being in-demand just ain't what it used to be. Before long they'll be Pay-Per-View, too!
