from circa 1965, high school assignment

There's that old man again,

the one with the limp grey hat

and the blue serge pant leg

flapping in the wind where a leg should be.

He's hobbling along, chicken-like

on a crunchy Fall day

and his crutches peck at the leaves.

He knows something that I don't know.
