Our Bowl 1924-1999

October 17, 2020

you were there

when we needed you

that’s more than I can say for most people

an original

75 years – came with the house, they say

now you sit in the alley


for that great toilet reaper

to sweep you and those 75 biodegradable years away

i try to imagine

what you went through

and what went through you


Rob Prince – 1999

(a poem – I guess you can call it that – I found among old papers)

    Very good poem, that old boy deserves a lot of praise for putting up with so much shit.
