The Good Life

I wrote this as an antidote to yesterday's poem. This one is based on my grandpa's life and philosophy. It makes a great deal more sense than the other one.

The Good Life

He gave me a nod,
“The Good Life?
It’s pretty clear.
The life that meets a:
Faithful God,
A loving wife,
An excellent beer,
And great pizza.”

  1. I read your poem yesterday and went away deeply troubled about your accurate assessment of society today--and even more troubled that though we have been given the eyes to see and the ears to hear, so many are too apathetic to do a thing about it.

    I read your poem today and went away smiling. So thank you for that! =)
