Poems 2012: Hero


I'd always wanted to meet him.
In my mind a thousand questions
About the sea, and foreign ports,
And war and blood and death.

He's no longer young
And moved on up the ranks
No longer just a "Cap'n"
He's now "Admiral Crunch."

What a disappointment!
Silly, insipid sap!
I met that dope for breakfast-
An hour I won't get back.
