The distinct whistle-how Dad rounded his lips
To make the sound that was an attention getter
A real grabber which meant it was time for:

                                        Come inside
                                        I want to talk to you

I hated that whistle when I was a kid
My friends would tease and the neighborhood knew
I had to fall in line
And march to family drum

How distinct was the whistle?
It went like something like this:

“                    “

As the years pass and the park is no longer there
I would kill to hear that whistle again
Memories are all that is left and now I am alone
No longer distinct/no longer at home
