Sample piece from FINGERPRINTS (On Canvas)

92 And Driving

She was ninety-two and driving
Couldn't see a bloddy thing
But she was ninety-two and driving

The peripherals are bad, she'd answer
When they'd ask about her sight
She was ninety-two and never wore glasses

She liked to squint in the car
She thought it gave her a youthful look
She was ninety-two and didn't look sixty

She was still glamorous, careful with herself
She loved to be noticed
People noticed her more in the car
She was ninety-two and driving

She would like to travel more
She felt it was the way to stay in touch
She touched lots of things
She was ninety-two and driving

Men like women with independence
Long hair, who wear hats
She always wore a hat
She was ninety-two and still looking

When she got old, she'd stop, she said
Because it might be dangerous
But after all, it was only a hat
She was ninety-two and driving
