50 th reunion tidings
This day by snail mail came
"A letter "
To my squint
From no less then
the year zero full 50 reunion committee
of the Choate school class of 67
Amidst much substance I find this :
" the values and lessons
we learned .....
from Seymour St John
and our masters ...."
[ V and L's ...Eh mates ..truly !...so
Truly ...truly so ... Yes V and L's ]
" ....upon which
we built our careers and our lives "
Our Careers and lives ....!!!
(A pause here )
Per chance per chance ....
The quality of mercy is deeply strained
It droppeth like the sweet doctors blade
upon the necks beneath ....
...roll tumbrels roll .....
many a classmate still may meet
the slicing kiss of death
before I too
Big sleep with the fishes of the deep
