My husband retired before me
And looking for something to do
He decided to make an educational film
Got himself all dressed up too
He had on his military shirt
With all his WW2 Medals pinned on the pocket
Was explaining to an invisible audience
About a gun, how to cock it and lock it.
He was serious as all get out
And I thought it was an admiral try
He took the gun apart and reassembled it
He was an expert and not at all shy
Then when the demonstration was over
All done in a serious tone
He stood up and reached for something
I almost broke my funny bone
Dressed at the top he was magnificent
In his pressed military shirt and cap
Below that were his striped pajamas
When he saw that he said , Oh Crap
