The morning is bright
for our hero this morning
We’ve got the milk drinker
to the crone who accompanies him.
We’ve got the curly haired lady
wearing sunglasses in the
dimmest corner of the room,
seemingly having a debate
We’ve got another auto-conversationalist
sipping his coffee,
polishing his glasses, and stuffing
table refuse into his jacket pockets.
A new man is here today.
New to me anyway
with rounded hat and posture
grey suit and complexion, and
large reddened nose and ears
On could easily see Jimmy Durante
in this person.
Aren’t people great?

Notes: Seeing Jimmy Durante in someone? Well, I must have been in a great mood this day!
