  disagree on everything

    snowy night
    old men boast of deeds
    never done

    old married couple
    the bickering begins
    at breakfast

    Bill,

    it happens often
    as getting older
    man gets bigoted and self-righteous

    Another side of the coin . . .

    Three old friends
    get together to tell
    the same old stories
    and giggle.

    in winter twilight-
    her wrinkled hand
    'gainst his wrinkled brow
