Grandpa Moses

“Don’t bother.” ~an old friend’s great-grandfather, on living past a century

He gets so close to the end
But he never quite makes it

All his loved ones all his friends
Have vanished while he’s waited

His spies say the Promised Land
Eats anyone who tastes it

But to him that green expanse
Looks like a wasteland wasted
