the grateful old man

keep the han in hanukkah

when i was ten star wars came out.

grateful for that.

when i was fourteen back in black came out.

grateful for that too.

something tells me that when heart attacks start hitting my age group,

someone will figure out how to prevent them with ice cream.

eat your ice cream today, gramps? the kids will yell at me

as they zip past in their jet packs.

i dont know why i worry about things.

better things just always show up.

just ask the ipad youre reading this on.

which im also grateful for.
