When We Were Boys

When we were boys
We peed on everything
Anywhere, anytime.

We peed on trees
In the woods
On tires flowers dogs
Fences;
Most pleasantly,
We peed in public pools.
Shamefacedly,
We peed in our beds
And in our good church
pants.

When we were boys
We peed on everything.
Anywhere, anytime.

Some things never change.

I still do that! Which seems to be the main criticism I receive from bloggers...

Merry Christmas Spencer! Too bad you're retiring from TJ.

Willie: Civilized society doesn't realize what it's done to us. Those little trees in the parking lot, it's like they're taunting us: 'Oh no, boys. No peeing on this one!'

Lodo: As my most regular commenter, I have to apologize to you if you've read this one before. I've been reposting old pieces all month because I haven't been able to squeeze in time to write anything blog appropriate. Work is keeping me busy, but it's good work.

Mather: Thanks. Maybe you should take over for me at TJ.
