Getting Older


Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011 with permission of the Author.

I'm not impressed with getting older.
It doesn't seem like a lot of fun.
Every joint seems to be seizing up,
And my feet won't let me run.
I don't hear as well as I used to,
My sight has never been good.
I'm still too slim, not curvy,
In spite of eating lots of pud!
I know now that I'll never be rounded,
Although for many years I've tried,
To grow a bosom I could catch crumbs on,
But my wish has been denied.
I suppose that I'm still quite bendy,
In spite of advancing years,
I'm able to push my head on my knees,
Without a hint of tears!
One of my greatest pleasures,
Is a long, long soak in the tub,
Up to my chin in bubbles,
and a bestseller from the book club.
I've always been impatient,
Some things never alter,
But now I want things yesterday,
Ask him indoors John Walter!
I guess I shouldn't grumble,
Things could be so much worse.
I could explode with impatience
And end up in a hearse!!
