Driving up to Vermont, I thought of him
Mom had given me some momentos---
Masonic ring, leather wallet,
a stack of canceled hundred dollar checks
---some great contacts there, such as
McGovern, Happy Chandler and Kefauver.
I was in my mid thirties when a head hunter
on Park Ave asked me what my Dad "did".
Unprepared for this question pitched directly,
----"Retired" I lied.
What your Dad "did" has no bearing upon
an introduction of you to an investment bank,
