Roots

rough
around the edges
the old prof
traced his lineage
back to louie
the homo sapien caveman
who used a club
on fellow brutes
with impunity

and tho highly educated
he could pummel
the best of em
with words
at the debate club
and win
every round
hands down

STATS:
male – age 65
height – 6 foot 5
weight – 250
build – muscular
hair – full
biceps – 28 in
SOCIAL:
married – the nightclub owners daughter
favorite sandwich – turkey club
drinks club soda
likes club med
 owns a  chihuahua  called “beast”
favorite sport – pugilism

recently
at the urging
of his son brutus
he began
distancing himself
from his past
and drawing the line
at wearing a kilt
lest people think him
too violent
