A FAREWELL TO PAPA


fishing poles
rifles
big game hunting
deep sea fishing
African safaris
ambulance driving
during a war
Paris
Spain
Cuba
Key West
Idaho
a large life
fully lived
which shows in the prose
words that moved
generations
and
inspired the world
after '61
the sun no longer rises
the bell no longer tolls
put the gun down
pick up a pen
keep telling the truth
