~~~~ Old Age ~~~~~



Old age has got a hold on you
say it's not so but
you know it's true.
When you set down
and can't get up
you are asleep in bed
but your teeth are in a cup.
~~~~~
Your hair is gray
and every so thin
you don't have a neck
because it's all chin.
And oh that nose
the shorter you get
the longer it grows.
~~~~~
When your front looks
just like your back.
And your dress hangs
on you like a sack
It's oh so true.
old age has happened to you
I know it happened to me.
