What Would You Like To Be When You Are Old? - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i ask the old man
of our neighborhood
sitting on a chair
in his yard
just in front
our house
as i water
the plants
in my garden,

his answer
is simple enough


'well, i like to die
because my friends
and classmates
are all gone, and
what use will this
life be? '

i agree.
