ramblings and things

924,511 poems read


I got my degree from


 The University of Life,


Master of Science


In Trouble and Strife.


 


And I cruised and I boozed


Through so many happy years,


Many periods of laughter,


One or two periods of tears.


I tried so many different ways


To reach so many different ends


Always supported and surrounded


By good colleagues and friends.


Married and widowed 


I lost months in despair


Until I found another and 


Learned that I could still care.


 


The next generation, my


Grandchildren often come to play


And i watch them grow and hope


They won't do things my way.


So I seem to have arrived


At a quietly contented stage


Amazed in all honesty


To have reached this age.


Looking back now


There's very little i would change


Maybe some words unsaid


That were spoken in rage.


 


And now I perform,


And for better or worse


Tell my life's story


In rhyme and verse.


The University of Life 


Has been such a good friend


As somehow unscathed


I've reached life's other end.


I thank you for listening,


Hope for you all life is fine


And wish for one and all that yours


Carries on as happily as mine,


 


Because i got my degree 


From the University of Life,


I was a Master of Science


In Trouble and Strife.
