Age 89, he is still nimble, tumbling in wise cracks.
Claims the insults are the truth. Proud, very Proud.
Not up for much. Does not engage.
Can not engage. Protect his family.
Alone, mostly. He knows his best days are gone.
Loves skinny women, younger–will betray, claiming innocence.
Medical issues stir in his head; a mind
that forgets in convenient ways. Insulting
at times. Loving in other. Frugal to a fault.
Family first. Chinese ties. Only goes out to shopper bus.
Get the mail. His quaint charm,
lack of schooling. A war hero lives on.
Way too proud. Way too proud.
