SATURDAY 2nd MAY 2009.

You look like my dad,
I said to my child;
Funny that,
He replied,
As you look like mine.

We debated a while,
Till he fell asleep,
Then I took the time
To complete
My comparison sheet:

His eyes are the same,
And his comb over,
Though his name
Is older
Than either.

In fact it’s my granddad’s,
So I know what will be:
This child will stand
Over me
As my age increases;

The father of the man,
With a son of his own,
Whose further wingspan
Will be flown
Over and over again.
