Visit to Brooklyn

Pain in the Ass

By: - Jul 22, 2015



Clinton Street, Brooklyn
Doctor’s row
Knock on the door
Surprised to see Mr. Flynn
Ashen faced and weak
Never before
Left Boston
Came by train
To see Doc
Only one he trusted
Terrible case of Hemorrhoids
Dad recalled
Fixing him up in the office
Big as ripe grapes
Snipped and sutured
Old man puffing on his pipe
Bond of love
Worth all the pain
Stayed to visit
The World Fair
Back home
Wrote a rare letter
