On The Grumpy Old Man

Close to if not eighty of time quite a span
I often see him walking in the park the grumpy old man
I said hello to him a few times but me he choose to ignore
He is one i will not be greeting anymore
Many times a grandfather ten years ago divorced by his wife
With him she did not know of an easy life
Than her moody ex husband she is far more sweet
A far nicer man than he is she was lucky to meet
Who wants to be with one who is moody all of the time
Who treats every smile as if it were a crime
He will never be my friend nor is he my foe
When we meet between us only silence and never a hello
Alone in his old age without a partner or wife
He is one who does not need friends in his life.
