Old Fashion

In an old fashion bar

In an old fashion town

Sits an old fashion guy

With an old fashion frown

There’s an old fashion drink

In his old fashion hand

And an old fashioned thought

Of an old fashion band

From an old fashion wedding

To an old fashion girl

And his old fashion loss

In his old fashion world

One old fashion tear

From his old fashion eyes

An old fashion nod

To some old fashion goodbyes

So the old fashion folks

Raise an old fashion round

To this old fashion guy

In this old fashion town

 

I’m an old fashion guy


Mike Dailey is a fairly well known poet in southeast North Carolina.  He lives near Sunset Beach with his wife of 50 years and the occasional visits with his daughter and two grandkids. His poems have been published in several magazines and anthologies.   He has had three books of poetry collections published; one based on cancer treatments he underwent, one based on his 30 years working as a civilian analyst for the US Army, and a book of spiritual poems.  He is always putting together several collections and looking for publishers. Mike’s poetry can be serious, topical, or very moving but he is known more for his rhythm and rhyme poetry with a twist of humor.
