Women Love Him - Poem by Lonnie Hicks

Women love my dad
even at 86
he still glides through life
breaking all the rules.

He still drinks too much
laughs all the time
calls all the women 'baby-fox'
and they love him for it.

Won't live with the kids
wants to play the field
with the sixty year olds
in the nursing home;
has women of all ages
whom he adores
and they adore him back.

Still does forty one-handed push-ups each day
and lives in a city where it gets 10 below
and he sits inside and paints pictures of Spring.

I still look at a picture of him at the beach
at 23 in a blue speedo
'baby foxes' all around.
He never grew up
and I glad he didn't.

Used to say to my mother:
'I am sick and tired of being right all the time.'
And she would say
'Don't worry dear I am here to help.'

She adored him too.
