Oh, Hi! How you been?

Me? I'm doing fine.

Can I buy you a drink?

Sure, they've got wine.

 

How's the family doing?

What, Billy's in college now?

I remember when he was born;

It seems like yesterday, somehow.

 

And how is Karen doing?

A flower shop? You don't say?

Well, she always was artistic

In a garden sort of way.

 

Oh, hell, I'm keeping busy,

 Work-coholics don't need rest.

And this line of work is forever tied

To the Red eye express.

 

No, marriage is not for me,

My life is simpler when I'm alone.

It wasn't good how my family suffered

When I was seldom home.

***

 

Well take it easy, my old friend,

And tell my "EX", --- "Flowers! Wow!"

 Let Billy know that his Daddy's proud,

 If you can fit that in, somehow.
