Will Grayson, Will Grayson (A Poem)

Will Grayson, Will Grayson

In the middle of one cold Chicago night,
There were two boys; one dark and one light.
One was in a store to test his fake I.D.
The other was there to meet his love-to-be.

When the cashier calls the first one’s name,
The second boy responds for his is the same.
Incredibly freaked, the first walks out,
But the second one follows him, filled with doubt.

Once they got acquainted and got over the surprise,
the second Will Grayson got all bug-eyed.
Maura had called and told him his love wasn’t true,
For he didn’t exist, she had pretended to be him too.

Shocked, the second Will could barely breathe,
So the first got his friend to try and relieve,
The poor broken hearted boy,
Who’d been played for a year like a stupid toy.

As he leaves his friend Tiny to do some good,
He goes off with Jane to see if she would,
End up with him because he liked her so,
But she ended up being nothing more than a no-go.

After that night nothing would be the same,
Due to the odd fate that called the two by name.
Tiny was soon going out with Will Grayson two,
And having dinner with his family so his mom would know who,
Was going to be around for her son there through.

Then a day after the visit with Will’s mum,
Tiny accidentally hurt Will Grayson one.
Completely torn up, he just went home,
But Jane showed up to tell him he wasn’t alone.
She was finally sure she wanted him,
And would actually try and take this whim.

But it wasn’t looking up for Will Grayson two,
When he finally proved his dying issue,
That he couldn’t be the happy guy,
That could be with Tiny thereby. 

This story then comes to an end,
With Tiny premiering his musical about all his boyfriends,
And the struggles in love that we all must face,
Because it’s all a game of catch and chase.

But his musical gets a wonderful surprise,
When Will two stands and looks in his eyes.
“My name is Will Grayson and I appreciate you Tiny Cooper” is what he said,
Then all the other Will Grayson’s went ahead,
And followed his lead for this was the plan,
To apologize to Tiny Cooper, the big brilliant man.
