He Go This Old Man - Poem by John Schwarz

Skinner who never felt
feelings were important
didn't want to be
an eponym at least he
knew he didn't wnt
to be a black box
nothing that Freud or
Jung or Erickson said
made any sense to him
although he had no interest
in clothes he never
appeared in public with
ripped pants or lectured
in a sweater as he got
older and older pho
tographers made him
taller and taller he thought
old age increased his
tendency to repeat
himself at the end
he decided the way
he had turned out
would have been accept
able when he began
