82.       TONY

He called himself a freeman
Who stayed in a converted garage
And once said if he win the LOTTO
He will turn it in to a double garage.
Make no mistake he is well educated
The once rich and married man
Has had a furniture factory
That is until his wife decided to leave him.
That is when he went underground
And played barman in small pubs
And now keep them in business.
But a like wise pensioner
He always had a kind ear
For my alleged disability.
That is when I had to hear
Of Michael his blind son
Who had made a success of his life
That had emigrated to North America
And now is working at City Bank
As a computer programmer.
If everybody had faith in me
As what Tony had
I would have been president now.
Thank you Tony.
