dear ms b-it was fun

that what i would say to you
if i was holding you in my arms this morning

why that historian brother of mine
that would be your great uncle
told a funny as he was talking about our ancestry
thats at least a fourth of your dna by the way

he was agoing through our ancestry
marching from my parents your great grandparents
sliding along that graph to tell stories about each one
he said know this one was got arrested once
for selling alcohol when he was not licensed to
do it
ms b
he was caught moonshining
no he wasnt a duke of hazzard moonshiner
just probably trying to make it in difficult economic times
thats al

yes go ahead and laugh
there was at least one incidence of limbs crossing some on
that family tree

but heck
there wasnt a lot of choices sometimes in those days
you had to do what you had to do
heck even now the government and  scientists say
its ok
if its further out on  that ancestry tree

there were a lot of kids little kids this year
where did they all come from
boom it seemed out of nowhere
theres more little ones coming this year
so therell be even more little ones to see next year
man they all seem so dang cute and so smart

a changing of the guard
it seems
those of us with the gray hair are becoming grayer
and grayer and grayer
more stooped
moving slower

the next generation is on its way
plenty to replace those who are fading away

thats your generation sweetie
the hope for the future
