Key West: The Great Comeback (or, Old Men and Old Cars)

Over time, the paint has faded,
but not so has the dream;
a setback here,
a challenge there,
but hope's brighter
than things seem.

First, there were the surgeries for
a hernia and cataracts;
hypertension here,
bout of gout there;
but I’m okay now,
ignoring facts.

Then, Vinnie’s transmission,
brakes, and steering too;
a thou$and here,
a thou$and there;
but just like me, he’s
good as new.

Sometimes road trips must wait
on old cars and old men;
yes, we’re still here,
getting it in gear;
but soon back on
the road again.
