A child was born this December day

With no past, no future, only the present,

Only his screams for food and change of diapers,

Only the now.

They named him Harold,

As good a man’s name as any.

And, hopefully, he’ll grow forward

Into a decent man’s past

With a good man’s epitaph.

No ghost of Marley on this boy’s door.
