this is the last time
said the old man
the absolute last time
I’ll say this again

if said more than once
that was enough
lord knows a bunch
is much too much stuff

he’d say the more often
too often as fact
he must have forgotten
each time coming back

this absolutely
this resolutely
this is the last time
would say the old man

this the curmudgeon
did say to the end
and that was the last time
he said this again
