The First Customer of the Day

You could hear him grumbling in the background
She said the tractor had run over him
Broke his hip smashed his cell phone
He was already an amputee
She said nothing could keep him down
He had already broken the wheelchair
So determined to be free
There was nothing sour about them
They giggled at every turn of the key
Life was joy and breathing was wine
The best of all was LOVE
The first customers of the day
And I absolutely must say
They wrote these words
Taught me a valuable lesson
And made their resilient world a part of mine
