Father knew best
when he left it to Beaver.
Always by the end, every thing was solved
until next week
Wally and Bud and Princess, all smiles
when it was time to move on

But what of real life
that no one knew
It wasn’t the familiar,
happy television ending.
Sometimes the bad guy
got away
sometimes the other guy
got the girl
sometimes nobody
lived happily ever after
