Oldies have something to share too…

Another year has passed

and we're all a little older.

Last summer felt much hotter

and winter seems much colder.

There was a time not long ago
when life was quite a blast.

Now I fully understand

about 'Living in the Past'.

We used to go to weddings,

football games and lunches.

Now we go to funeral homes,

and after-funeral brunches.

We used to have hangovers,

from parties that were gay.

Now we suffer body aches

and wile the night away.

We used to go out dining,

and couldn't get our fill.

Now we ask for doggie bags,

come home and take a pill.

We used to often travel

to places near and far.

Now we get sore asses

from riding in the car.

We used to go to nightclubs

and drink a little booze.

Now we stay home at night

and watch the evening news.

That, my friend is how life is,

and now my tale is told.

So, enjoy each day and live it up...

before you're too damned old!
