When I was an infant tucked in my crib,
I nursed from a bottle and spittled my bib.
Then as a toddler, before I knew it,
My foot was so wide they
hardly could shoe it.
Kindergarten was a wonderful place,
I learned with others to share the space.
Going to Middle School in my teens,
me for High School and chili-beans.
I went to the service to win a war,
As so many others had done before.
It was a wife and the kids following
With plenty of grand-kids to love and pat.
Alas! Now I'm old and tucked in my crib,
I nurse from a bottle and spittle my bib.
