 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan

Turning eighty is not easy
The thought turns my stomach queasy
Remember old man I'm not far behind
Let the years of friendship begin to unwind
Gee were either of us ever in the second grade?
The day my best friends friendship was made
We did not sit on the popular side of the room
The class led by girls that old witch and her broom
Some said you looked identical to David Jansen
Enough so to be his twin brother
thought you looked more like Gomer Pile or his Mother
We joined the National Guard and Air Force together
Served our country in any kind of weather
The years have past and we remain best of friends
Before I muddle this up this is where the birthday wish
Fishing and rock hunting?
Remember choke setter and Cougar guide
The older you get the better you wuz
I'm ending this for sentimenal reasons just because


Ends!
