Revelations

The older you get

The more you realize

That no matter how careful

You are,

Getting from there to here
Requires more than a bit of luck,

A quick peek at the obituaries drives

It home,

When I was a kid I remember some

Old ladies talking about Fred and Helen,

How Fred came on Sundays

And Helen came on Mondays

Just like clockwork with the milk

Delivery,

It took some years to figure

That one out.
