Old Scout Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 1

Sponsored Links

Is it because I'm bent and grey,

      Though wearing rather well,

That I can slickly get away

      With all the yarns I tell?

Is it because my bleary eye

      No longer beams with youth

That I can plant a whopping lie,

      And flout the truth?


I wonder why folks hark to me

      Where once they would have laughed?

They treat my yarns respectfully,

      No matter how they're daft.

They count the notches on my gun

      And stroke its polished butt,

Wanting to know why every one

      Of them was cut.

Indeed were I to stick to fact

      Their interest would flag;

Dramatically I must act

      The rôle of scalliwag;

A battle veteran to be,

      A frozen argonaut,

A castaway in coral sea,--

      Such a tommyrot!

And so with unction I conceive

      Invention wild and new,

Until I'm coming to believe

      My taradiddles true . . .

Is it because I'm old and sage,

      I draw a bow that's risky?

Or can it be--that lies with age

      Improve like whisky?
