Two Old Men
They come together to discuss Obama’s latest folly.
The price of gas, today’s headlines create conversation.
Reminiscing, rumination the focus of many hours.
Their latest conditions lead to friendly medical advice.
Old so-and-so down the street demands occasional discussion.
Their lives now in twilight, highlighted by these daily visits.
Chats, despite the pressing of time, are interrupted by naps.
Day to day reminders, support will fill their remaining days.
Loves lost to the fates have brought even closer these two old chums.
Widowers and lifelong friends come together to fill a void.
