Form #1 - Lessons

Upon learning of the death of a bad
boyfriend's mother, I paused
and wished her
well on the next leg.

You can be good and decent and kind
and gentle and
sweet.
You may leave a lasting
impression on the young
girls who passed briefly through
your orbit
and wished they could be like you.

You might have worked every
day to demonstrated
the golden
rule at and
you still might have a son who grows up to be
douchie.

Rest in piece
my dear friend.
