OCHO

By Ari Dane

Did I know the man well?

Not in number of years

Still, well enough to share laughter and tears

We’d toast glass of wine

Swap some lies and some truth

With a twinkle in eye he’d spin tales of his youth

 

Impeccably dressed

The man was all class

Musicians might say,

 “That cat is a gas!”

 

Hey!

None of us knows

What lies 'round the bend

 Today we miss Ocho

  We all miss our friend

 

How he loved that Jag!

He’d polish and shine

I’d always joke:

 “When you’re finished, do mine!”

Nuthin’ it seemed the guy couldn’t fix

With somethin’ he’d pull out of his bag of tricks

 

Hey!

None of us knows what lies 'round the bend

 Today we miss Ocho

  We all miss our friend

 

Did I know the man well?

Not in number of years

Still, well enough to share laughter and tears

 

Hey!

None of us knows what lies 'round the bend

 Today we miss Ocho

  We all miss our friend

Thank you for telling me. I wouldn't have known. I thought about him after you told me and he was as real to me as he was when he was around. Class and what a gas. The world shouldn't be so cruel. Enjoyed your visit Ivor
