Grandpa Lanie

Grandpa Lanie was really 'cool;'
He didn’t say much at all,
And always sported a cabbbie cap,
But didn’t drive a tall.

He walked everywhere he went,
Or would ride the bus.
He embraced the simple things,
And never made a fuss.

He wore suspenders every day,
And pushed his homemade cart.
And as one who loved the ‘rod’—
Fishing was his heart.
