Goodbye To The Old Life Analysis



Author: poem of Wesley McNair Type: poem Views: 4

Goodbye to the old life,

to the sadness of rooms

where my family slept as I sat



late at night on my

island of light among papers.

Goodbye to the papers



and to the school for the rich

where I drove them, dressed up

in a tie to declare who I was.



Goodbye to all the ties

and to the life I lost

by declaring, and a fond goodbye



to the two junk cars that lurched

and banged through the campus

making it sure I would never fit in.



Goodbye to the finest campus

money could buy, and one

final goodbye to the paycheck



that was always gone

before I got it home.

Farewell to the home



and a heartfelt goodbye

to all the tenants who rented

the upstairs apartment,



particularly Mrs. Doucette,

whose washer overflowed

down the walls of our bathroom



every other week, and Mr. Green,

determined in spite of the evidence

to learn the electric guitar.



And to you there, the young man

on the roof turning the antenna

and trying not to look down



on how far love has taken you,

and to the faithful wife

in the downstairs window



shouting, "That's as good

as we're going to get it,"

and to the four hopeful children



staying with the whole program

despite the rolling picture

and the snow - goodbye,



wealth and joy to us all

in the new life, goodbye!
