Thank You And Adieu - Poem by Barb Nixon

The die was cast, the mold broken
a unique specimen of altruism and imperfection,
never to shadow my path again
but a legacy of lessons bestowed
a learning curve of bitter regrets
for that Im forever in your debt.

Adieu, adieu, my transient friend
scholarly character, depth of stitched pocket
impeccable teacher, incorrigible lecher
a fountain of platitudes and trite innuendo
masterclass of fickleness and disingenuity
Adieu, thank you, your demise was a surety.
