Patience isn’t sexy…

Patience is for the impatient but useless advice,

like telling a friend in panic to just calm down,

it never works and sounds like you’re telling me

to prepare for belts cinching-up my tan chinos

and discount coffee at McDonald’s with old men

wearing baseball caps older than I am,

complaining about everything including

how much people complain and how youth

is wasted on the young and what we can’t eat

and comparing prescriptions,

adding that our wives are just happy that

we’re out (and out of their hair – as thinning

as it is) but she still loves you because

she’s the very definition of patient.
