WHEN YOU COUNT ELEVEN GRANDCHILDREN


When you get old you are bound to say things
That other people don't like to stick up
For the underdog forget about yourself
Because you're going to kick the
Bucket someday...as at least
Half your life
Is over...the other half
Could suck to the big dog barking
At you to get away get away get away
When you get to count eleven grandchildren
You don't even have enough fingers to do that
Your bound to put down your storm like a dust devil.
