“The Old Man” by Jonathan B.

A man is a man when?

When he ages out of

the pubescent age?

Or when the fluorescent bulb is lit within the brain?

Or to appreciate the leaves that breathe,

but do not speak?

A man is a man when a plan is set,

But only when the plan is a goal that is met,

A goal that must be complete

And not obsolete to the man’s existence.

A man must not set himself up to lose

Even if the life he lives,

Is like a lit fuse.
