Chances are ...

byMy Erotic Trail©

Chances are...
He has 'Old-Timers'

He was here today
telling me about 'yester-year'
of when he was a boy
hunting 'snipe' for supper
loading his shot-gun barrel with broken glass
to increase his chances

chances are...
it was one of his most memorable yesterdays

Like yesterday
he asked 'where am I at?'
I said, 'Home!'
he asked, 'where is that?'
Mom says, 'Home is where the heart is'

chances are ...
he didn't remember that today

Today he toys with a fishing line
like he has forgotten what to do with it
family, the tie that binds
a rope with many strands
an old timer holds tightly to one

chances are...
he won't be here too many more tomorrows
