Golf Dad

The clink of golf clubs slung in the car

The smell of green grass freshly mown

The heave of the sigh of the amateur golfer fending his way

The heal of the hole being under the clay.

These are the things I remember my Dad by

They make me sing for the days of yore when

I could afford a few pence to play a bit of ball

But no more for I am without and that is where

The sin sets in.

To admit one is short is a cardinal immortal sin to be alone

Is another.

To be both and admit it is the end.

Is it failure not to be as my dad was been? To

Feel the end is here without a son or daughter to send

Unto the abyss of time ahead…?
