A Beer And A Shot!

a beer and a shot....
two old men sitting
on the stoop. talking...

about old times, jobs,
women, and life....
changing the strings

on a battered old Gibson...
the old dog just happy
to lie at their feet....

the sound of bacon frying,
the clatter of pots and pans....
a hawk soaring in circles

over the fields turned brown...
a couple of songs,
a few flakes of snow....

a beer and a shot,
as time draws short!
