Older Than My Old Man

My indestructible father,
with arms like corded steel,
and deep, sinewy chest,
all vitality and vigor,
struck dead by a random act of nature,
aged thirty-nine and seven months.

And I, with softer arms and a paunch,
and less vitality and vigor,
am alive and well,
aged thirty-nine and eight months.
