The Luckiest Man

Neal hit his head on a mail box,
Bertie Blower got stung by a wasp...
Virginia died when hit by a car,
Her mother, in the Holocaust.

Laura had terminal cancer,
Her baby was doomed from the start...
I smoked cigarettes for forty five years,
Damaging teeth, both lungs and my heart.

I wondered if any one ever survived,
Drinking, smoking, french fries and a tan...
Discovering this photo, I will assume,
He's the world's luckiest man!


  1. Or maybe his life style just makes him look 40 years older.

  2. It's possible Lorrene. Maybe he is only fifty here.
