NAPOWRIMO 2013 #24


LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

(c1948)



You're my dad


You look like me


Or at least


How I used to be


When I was the same


As you were then



(c1991)



(c1989)




Now all that remains


Of these two men


Is some photographs


Before and after


And two whole lifetimes


Of love and laughter


(2013)






MORE 24... For Miz Quickly's wordle


LOOPHOLE



Slip knot detour
Avoids cold slab aftermath

Shocked, boring guest
Furiously crossed palm
With 'modest' transfer value

  3. The resemblance is obvious Stan, and your wordle is succinct and well controlled.
