The Noisy But Happy Old Dear

She talked loudly to her friend the gray haired old dear
The story of her weekend I could not help but overhear
As I sat in the cafe drinking a coffee
They gossiped away quite oblivious to me
Her friend younger and quieter though her hair too was gray
Sat listening intently to what her friend had to say
She said last night at the bingo two hundred dollars I won
My wins big or small I do share with my son
I've heard it said some people talk loudly if of hearing they are impaired
She did not seem to be aware of the presence of others not that she would even have cared
Excited about her weekend her bingo win brought her great happiness
That she was the noisiest in the cafe it did seem she couldn't care less
That she did have a marvellous weekend she wanted everyone for to hear
As she chatted to her quiet friend of her wonderful weekend the noisy but happy old dear.
