Joe’s Poem

Happy birthday, Joseph.
If you could guarantee
People would remember
A single anecdote
From the seven decades
You’ve accumulated,

What story would you choose?
For myself, I’d prefer
Your cow riding story
Or your near-death horse ride,
Or any of your tales
Involving foolishness

Near Chinook, Montana,
But I’ll let you decide.
It’s your life to recall.
I know you wish we all
Could choose from long, long lives
Bright sights to leave behind.
