Practical Strength

He doesn’t know his deadlift max but
saw his son go off to grab a snack
and come back a pine box, he
doesn’t know his benchpress, doesn’t
care much to salute the flag, he
doesn’t want to talk about
how much he can curl, or
how fast he can run, he
can work the fields alright enough
and most fellas his age aren’t half as hale,
but he doesn’t want to talk about strength,
he doesn’t even recognize your definition
