SEVENTEEN: DON MATHIS

IT'S THE AGE OF INVINCIBILITY -
OR SO MY SON WOULD LIKE TO HOPE
BUT THE HARD AND FAST REALITY
IS LIFE IS FRAGILE AND THAT'S NO JOKE.

SOON HE WILL BE IN HIS SENIOR YEAR -
AND I'LL BE A SENIOR CITIZEN.

HE WILL GO EXPLORE FROM FAR TO NEAR -
I'LL BE A NURSING HOME DENIZEN.

THE OLD APRON STRINGS ARE FRAYING THIN.
SOMEDAY SOON THEY (AND HE) WILL BUST FREE.

NEW LIVES FOR US BOTH WILL THEN BEGIN
AND OUR 'US' WILL SPLIT TO 'HIM' AND ME.'
