Joey Analysis

I thought I would go daft when Joey died.

He was my first, and wise beyond his years.

For nigh a hundred nights I cried and cried,

Until my weary eyes burned up my tears.

Willie and Rosie tried to comfort me:

A woeful, weeping family were we.



I was a widow with no friends at all,

Ironing men's shirts to buy my kiddies grub;

And then one day a lawyer came to call,

Me with my arms deep in the washing-tub.

The gentleman who ran poor Joey down

Was willing to give us a thousand poun'.



What a godsend! It meant goodbye to care,

The fear of being dumped out on the street.

Rosie and Willie could have wool to wear,

And more than bread and margerine to eat . . .

To Joey's broken little legs we owe

Our rescue from a fate of want and woe.



How happily he hurried home to me,

Bringing a new-baked, crisp-brown loaf of bread.

The headlights of the car he did not see,

And when help came they thought that he was dead.

He stared with wonder from a face so wan . . .

A long, last look and he was gone,--was gone
.



We've comfort now, and yet it hurts to know

We owe our joy to little, laughing Joe.
