Text
72 and she still couldn't retire.  
She worked every day since 17.  Alone, 
she didn't have any children or spouse.  
When asked, she simply said, "Those were the 
cards I was dealt."  She was tired of explaining 
the truth.  That in small towns, tragedies 
happen too.  Not the kinds you read in papers. 
The kinds that are too sad to report: the ones 
that can't be explained with reason.
 ~Excerpt from poem 72 Years by Suzanne Coley
