Lifetime guarantee

Like Rip Van Winkle, the whole
BabyBoomer generation awakens
to plenty reduced to the spare change
any grizzled guy on any streetcorner
hawking the STREET NEWS stems for;
last Wed. nite, opposite the S.F.Opera,
he said “God Bless You” as I hobbled by
on my segmented folding metal cane,
being rebuilt knee-by-knee (@ 67)
with a rest-of-lifetime guarantee
by Kaiser-Permanente..
