Harry Katz and Hannah Aaron – two poems by G David Schwartz

Harry Katz

My best man what went wrong 
Its been years since we went out drinking

And months since we playing pool
Hey there my best man, was my wife so cruel 

I am sure he is well
Although time must tell
I haven't seen him is ages
Through sandscrip books and pages
Yes I know this is so true
And I am telling you
That my old bud Harry Katz
Did never and shall not eat no rats   Harry Katz

Hannah Aaron 

I am still caring
About the school
About the team
and about you
Lovely Hannah
One of my first
Ladies to love  
And talk to with fun
Intelligent girl
and not even spoiled
In those days of roil
