Moobie, Moobie - Poem by Lawerence Mize, Sr.

It started one day
many years ago.
Me and the kids
traveling the high road.
We went to the movies
to see the shows.
I pronounced it, 'Moobie, Moobie.'
That's what they came to know.
We'd spend the day
out of a long weekend.
Me, the kids,
sometimes a friend.
The trip was an adventure
for them and me.
A happy bunch
for all to see.
Now I'm old.
Kids are grown.
Not unhappy.
No need to moan.
My oldest son
still goes with me.
Now the grandkids
get treated to a 'Moobie.'
Lucky man.
I truly am.
Traveling the high road.
Once again.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Over the years I enjoyed the company of my children and now grandchildren whenever I would take them to a movie.
