Tragic

Perhaps lamenting
The spilling of a full beer
A steel guitar wails

Old enough to fight,
But not to enjoy a beer.
We’re fighting for what?

An excuse to drink a beer
This Spring afternoon

Maine’s freeze is over
I have a new source of SAD
Good-bye winter brews

buy both gas and beer. So I
have to stop driving.

Remember Them All

For the ones you know
And the ones you’ll never meet
Give a solemn toast
