metaphor poem, future thoughts

metaphor poem, future thoughts

so long old year you had

memorable memories hello

new year let's hope for more

I think though I'm at the age

where I should be writing out

my last wishes – of course we

should all do this at any age –

no telling what's coming down

the pike – for my event the tunes

should be handel bach brahms

but I also want (minus those

first & last schmaltzy stanzas)

the Chattanooga choo choo
