Three Aged Locals

They meet by the milk bar in the mid morning of Saturday
The old blokes wearing hats that the years have left gray
They talk for an hour or more since they have lots to say
About politics and football and the prices of livestock and hay
Three aged old timers looking the worst for wear
Suppose their crosses in life they were given to bear
For years they have been giving each other the run down
Of the happenings of late in the parish and town
Every Saturday morning they chat for an hour sometimes two
If some women can gossip so can some men too
Grandfathers each of the three married to a local wife
Three locals they are locally born and raised and will be local for life
Of the happenings locally they are in the know
Though the years they have lived clearly on them does show.
