(Looking forward; He went to school
learned to read graduated got a job
feeding children fell in love married
never drank never smoked made friends
all who knew him loved him
had two children with his perfect wife
watched them grow into adults
retired enjoyed his grandchildren
bought a home in a southern state
collected his pension drank
two tall glasses of milk a day exercised
regularly and lived happily ever after.)
