Like Alfred Newman

Today I visited Liam my grandson – the man,
I haven’t seen him in a couple of weeks,
Although I‘m a fan,
He smiled at me with his two teeth, actually just one,
Well make it one and a half,
He has that look about him of one very tough,
Today he started to crawl, wiggling his behind,
He will go anywhere should he make up his mind,
When he looks at me smiling wide,
I fill up with a sense of pride,
That smile rings a bell from years long gone,
Alfred Newman, on Mad Magazine cover always shown,
Well you have to be old enough to remember that,
Before computers, sushi, frozen pizza and Second Cup
