COMMON FARE FOR UNCOMMON

COMMON FARE FOR UNCOMMON

A twenty-fifth ‘versary,

Celebration with little money…

So much for the plans

Of a party grand,

We contend with adversity.

Ham and cheese sandwiches do,

With memories to chew…

Chilled well water

Won’t cause us totter,

Until we’ve made seventy too!*

The rent’s also due today

With a doctor’s appointment, OLE!

At least we’ll get out

For a picnic, no doubt,

And spend more on us other days.
