In our three score and ten,
we haven’t changed the world much—
though we marched for peace,

married and twice divorced
during continuous conflicts overseas,
over who knows what

philosophy it paid to exterminate. Now
it turns too fast for us and we retreat
like old bucks before the hunt.

  2. Looks awfully familiar; three score and ten, married and twice divorced. And if the dedication is for Mr. Grant, please say “Howdy!” for me the next time you run into him. Best always, my friend.
