Bombshell news reigning down
As I’m listening to Steely Dan
Tell me William and Mary won’t do
And I’m thinking about the first time we met
You were college cool
Dating my aunt
So you must have been cool
The years proved it to be so
Somehow you got me
My adolescent angst
But we drifted apart
Lives separated by distance
And the cruelties of life
I had heard things were going better for you
Mine too
Our cruelties being a release
To goodness and peace
As I wait news of your fate
Uncle of mine
I pray your peace lives on
