 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan

In my youth
Finding that perfect girl
"You're the last person
I would date!"
OK, backup plan was sports
Every season a different game
 reasonably good
Trophies don't sell in garage sales
The bicycle major transportation
Top three recruit in basketball
But that ended in college
Signed to a baseball contract with Pirates
My arm gave way to pain
Not saying this for bragging
You get older the younger pass you by
Sorry girls had your chance
A loser took you to the dance
Happily married sometimes still get the eye
True love and family get in the way
Then comes that day
Watching sports on television
The knees pain gets in the way
The older I get the better I was
The knees, the hips are out to pasture
So what does one do for fun
I know many of us Seniors non drinkers
It is off to the Casino for a little action
Problem is it is not risk, the computer controls
Someone says good luck
Trust me it is not luck
So into the machine the Social Security check goes
The new photo tickets the Police now use
Not for the criminals the speeders
It is the old Seniors going to the store they abuse
Taxes are going up to pay for those who the system abuse
So I try to warn Casinos are not gambling
But you know the wife is lucky
Once again she came home a big winner
And me a loser back in the Casino for this sinner
Thinking someday the winner could be me
Not a good bet you agree?
