I Learned it from Opie

I learned it from Opie
In the very first episode
That you can hate Aunt Bea—
Not on account of who she is mind you
But on account of who she is not:
Dear Rose who got married
And simply had to move away.

My new routine is not the one I loved first
And until now I had not even tried to love it
For it appears I was hoping all along
That it was all a big mistake
And would simply go away.
