we learn that
though our pieties are as cheap as karaoke
they still can carry us Oakie Doakie
through a troubled life.



Truer words were never spoken
though the judgment thus expressed
must be reserved,
The rum in the fishhouse punch
The beers consumed keeping pace
with the Marines and Navy pilots
who celebrated grandson's birthday
have left all thought confused,
head spinning and throbbing,
joyous but aching.
And still the night is young.

John
