Best Poem of John Anderson

Young Man's Death

A grey haired man in his 70s; hiding the spring in his step
A thriving man in his 20s; except he is dead

And as I sat in the crowded room
hunched shoulders; an air of doom
'It isn't fair, ' someone said
As if only a senior were ever that were dead

The spry codger felt guilty for being old
Like he'd stolen years, or cheated a toll
And no one asked did the kid smoke or drink?
'Cause he was far too young, was all we could think

But as I listened, looking like I was praying
I came to realize, none of us will be staying
He wasn't robbed, his years ...

The Hobo Was Offended

On a twisting road behind me
Full of stones and pits
I spot a lonesome hobo
Who looks pensive as he sits

He sits on a clean-shaved stump
And opens up his shoe
And empties it of dirt
While his toe is peeking through
