To Dad


Come over, we’ll memory-mine,

catch the match, share plans

on researching our bloodline 


and forget the vagaries of the mind;

the failures, blanks, lost moments.

Come over, we’ll memory-mine


like we did with Gran in seventy-nine

strange stories, we didn’t quite believe

for researching our bloodline.


So often lives were intertwined

with romance, laughter, greed.

Come over, we’ll memory-mine


and catch where John Hogan declined

the truth and made it hard to give talks

on researching our bloodline. 


A dram of Auchentoshan will help  

remember the taste of home. So, 

come over. We’ll memory-mine, 

catch the match, research bloodline.
