is a 69 year old, Atheist male.
Living in Southbury, connecticut
When light defies inexorable night
And dusk is held at bay
I'll cheer the rebel's futile fight
That comes at end of day
When blood yet streams through stubborn hearts
And beats its raddled drum
I'll sing the song till it departs
Upon the final strum
When water meets a grateful shore
And every thirst it saves
I'll drink a cup forevermore
Of all the blessed waves
When slumber coldly shoulders in
And vows to not redeem
I'll kiss the day without chagrin
To sleep, perchance to dream
"The doctor says to me, 'You fell on one foot, my man. And bloody lucky for you you didn't fall on both feet,' he says. 'Because if you had of fallen on both feet you'd have shut up like a bloody concertina, and your thigh bones'd be sticking out of your ears!"
Clearly the phrase was not the doctor's but Bozo's own. He had a gift for phrases. He had managed to keep his brain intact and alert, and so nothing could make him succumb to poverty. He might be ragged and cold, or even starving, but so long as he could read, think and watch for meteors, he was, as he said, free in his own mind.
