Alden, Alden

By Jen Hunt (circa 2012)


He keeps to himself

He’s in the know

He walks to school with pack in tow

A thinker, a dreamer

A Star Trek: Next Generation Streamer

Finally a bona fide teen

To Calvin only sometimes mean

Quiet and faithful, a real joy and pleasure

Never without his trusty tape measurer

Facebooks when there’s stuff to tell

Plays his well

iPod touch and sports card buyer

Divides his time between drums and choir

The urban feel and sleek d├ęcor

Are what he frequents Starbucks for

Drawn to all forms of transportation

Destined for greatness and citification

Sensitive hands, sensitive heart

Engineer- sleuth with real spy smarts

Expert at things he’s never been taught

Pointer ever seeking snot

Lake Lundgren and Districts Fan

Our bacon-loving techno-man
