Ninety Percent


I guess all parents know this,

but I had no idea,

that most of life’s enjoyment

comes from watching someone else’s;

Laughing at some hoary joke

that has a bit of tread left,

Being around an old pal

and “remember that time we got caught?,”

playing a newly-minted song

with a bit of the old magic.

In fact, I’d say it’s ninety percent.

I’m giving Isaac your Baby Blue.

He said: “I remember how he grinned when

he took his Guild from the case.

And those bear hugs he scattered

all over the place.”
