Mr. Michael
by Russell E Brunt

MR.  MICHAEL
LIVES AT THE TOP 
OF THE HILL

WONDER
WHAT HE'S WAITING
FOR

MAYBE IT IS SOMETHING
LOST OR
SOMETHING MORE

OR MAYBE SOMEONE 
HE IS WAITING
FOR!!

COULD BE YOU
COULD BE ME 
COULD BE MORE

OH,
LIVES AT HOME
ALL ALONE.

MR. MICHAEL LIVES
AT HIS GROCERY
STORE

PUT A BELL ABOVE
HIS DOOR
LOOKS AT EVERY
PATRON

WHEN THE DOORBELL RINGS
WONDER WHO HE'S WAITING
FOR!

COULD BE YOU
COULD BE ME  
COULD BE HER

OH,
ANOTHER WALK'IN INTO
HIS GROCERY STORE.

MR. MICHAEL LOOKS AT
THE CLOCK AND THEN
NOTICES IT'S TIME 
TO CLOSE AGAIN 

THE LOOK OF DISSAPOINTMENT
IS ON HIS FACE
I CAN SEE IT WHILE 
HE'S LOCKING UP 
THE STORE.

IT WASN'T YOU
WASN'T ME... 
WONDER WHO?

OH,
ANOTHER DAY HE STAYS
AT HOME ALONE.

MR. MICHEAL WATCHES
AS THE YEARS GO BY 

I'M LOOKING AT THE
DAYS GOIN' BY
THEN ONE DAY A LADY
WALKED RIGHT THROUGH
THE DOOR

LIKE MAGIC, 
NEVER SAW HIM SMILE 
BEFORE.   
                    
IT WAS HER
IT WAS HER
NOW I KNOW

YES,
SHE WAS WORTH 
ALL THE WAITING 
FOR

MR. MICHAEL ASKED HER 
THINGS LIKE 
'THIS' AND 'THAT'

TO AFRAID 
TO DO IT AS A 
BOY

SUDDENLY, 
HE TOSSED HIS
KEYS TO ME 

SAID, "BOY!, 
THIS HOUSE AND STORE
ARE NOW ALL YOURS"
 
THE END!
