~*Seventy I Think*~
*
When you reach the age
That I have reached now
Is it of any wonder?
I have furrows in my brow
Hairs growing out of my ears
There not my only concern
My memory is not as it was
Sometimes I tend to forget
Now what was I saying?
Oh yes I remember now
I was saying sometimes I forget
Like where are my spectacles 
When there on the top of my head
Or why I’m stood in my kitchen
When I intended going to bed
And then I end up making a cup of tea
When really I wanted to go for a pee
Then I just burst out laughing
Because it’s even funny to me
And if you are of the same generation
I sure with me you will agree
