OLD SOLDIERS – YA DON’T TRY TO ROB ‘EM
I received an early morning blog
‘bout a bully who made an attempt to rob
a bike from buddy; assaulted by a thief
but it was John who won the beef
This is a fine tale that I really like;
the thief tried to steal John Leighton’s bike
There were no ifs, no ands, no buts
when John kneed fuckie in the nuts
The mean street thugs should take a warning
‘bout thefts from seniors in the early morning.
Some old guys still, they have the brass
to kick a fuckin’ bully’s ass!
Crimes of violence are on the increase
just like this assault by a bloody thief
the rap sheet tells a long, long tale
perhaps this time he’ll go to jail?

Author’s Note: Ya don’t muck wid ol’ commandos – lesson learned by a 28-year-old bully punk who attempts theft from 70-year-old senior – good headline for an article about vulnerable seniors getting beatings and having their pension cheques ripped off. Ya gave him a free lesson in unarmed combat John – the hit in the balls worked nicely – kudos to you John for your overcoming adversity – it was a statement that old folks need not lay down and roll over. Any court date for the perp as yet?
Old Soldiers – ya don’t try to rob em, or if ya do try, ya suffers de consequences…
Grandsons, Grandpas, and the “F” Word
“Granpa, ya said the F word in one of your poems”
“Ya but I left off the “g” and that’s the way soldiers talk – it is part of the culture not used by civilians. But don’t you be saying it ‘cause your mom will be mad at gramps.”
“Poems are stories that tell of people and events and beauty and sorrow and tales about life and death and suffering and pride and great achievements and the human spirit”
