There You Are


“No matter

where you go,

there you are,”

~ Yogi Berra


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



came back

took a trip

went to the fair



Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7


running from police

for rioting and looting

anarchist was paid

being caught is no big deal

liberal judge looks other way




one too many games without a helmet
the old mind is losing its merit
can’t remember names or dates
does this lead all men to their fates

going to see the doc next Tuesday
his choice of a supplement to stop the decay
is it worth my money to believe their hype
do I really fit into that old age stereotype

my tailor says I should forget to eat
leave the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat
thinking thin has produced no results
for motivation the wife is hurling insults

growing older has not been fun
but I guess it will happen to everyone
stop worrying, enjoy the day
one is never too old to play


ME and the Boss
