Old Man


J.E. McClellan

As The Old Man Walked

Through The Desert He Wondered

Why He Wandered Far And Long.

He Came Across A Mother That Nursed;

But When Paused To Help She Spat and Cursed.

The Old Man Tired And Despaired of Thirst;

As He Wandered And Searched To Quench His Tired Thirst

He Came To A River; That Was Blocked By A Barbed Wire Fence;

And Wondered If He Were Truly Cursed.
