Ole Dave

It was a grave day as they took him away- away from hope-the charter of a new day He was a fixture on the corner seems-he'd been there forever The locals knew him by name everyone else- relished their disdain He was a medic in Nam saw more death than anyone This frozen day all his words had fallen away to a silence so complete it had knocked him off his feet
