Suspenders lifting soiled pants

Lee ignores the old lady rants

Probing the counter for goodies and more

Lee will retire to a corner and snore

Life at the senior center is routine, at bay

Wastes over four hours each day

It doesn’t matter all that much

For it’s a small price to see this bunch

To be social, or just listen to chatter

Bored goes the time–but it doesn’t matter

Putting away dishes and snacks because he’s able

A bi-weekly simple staple

Chicken with cream gravy

Just like in the Navy

Pudding or dry vanilla cake

Sure is better than what Lee can make

Life moves on a positive note

Given transportation, these folks still vote

They know much more than they are credited for

Crooked smiles, mindful eyes, we have learned to adore
