Young Man, Old Man



A young man with an old man's knees

Please,

I’m only just sixty.


A young man with an old man’s back,

Lacks,

Straightness, now all twisty.


A young man with an old man's eyes

Surprise,

That was a blur a moment ago.


A young man with an old man’s legs,

Unterwegs,

I think I should stay not go.


A young man with an old man’s brain,

Refrains,

From remembering, or thinking.


A young man with an old man’s face,

Replaces

Eye bag skin, ease of winking.


A young man with an old man’s bingo wings

Swings,

Once swinging it’s difficult to halt.


A young man with an old man’s lacklustre hair,

Despairs,

Once pepper pot, now mostly salt.


A young man with an old man’s taste,

Waste,

Doesn’t appreciate good food or style.


A young man with an old man’s testicles

Genitals

Let's just let sleeping dogs lie for a while.
