I was born, breathed air and suckled at breast.
A brother came, I used to detest.
A few years east then we all moved west,
(a company thing, at my father's behest).
My parents split, though t'was for the best -
Their marriage vows had grown o'erstressed.
I was schooled and loved and mostly blessed,
Books were my sine qua non -- I obsessed.
I looked and looked for love with zest;
Forever eluded and I was depressed.
Met Auburn Angel, my heart obsessed.
"Marriage?" I quoth; she acquiesced.
One son, then a second, now grace our nest,
Our family's full, read on for the rest...
