Looking Back

looking back
we see simplicity
regular lines of fixed length
the voice of our fathers
incapable of modern expression
trite
ineffective
a phase best forgotten
the fodder of fools.

Yet I recall my father as a strong man
He wore a smile and had a booming voice
When he spoke the world would tremble
In fear or delight, it was always his choice.
