Getting old? Sounds like Hell!
Losing your senses and starting to smell.
Most of your bodily orifices, leaking.
Consequently, you end up reeking.
Depressed, distressed, and most unhappy.
Like a baby, wearing a nappy.
I'm not being being unkind, its a fact.
(But maybe I could have used more tact!)
Daily life becomes ever more trying,
While most of your friends around you are dying.
Forever living in the past,
At the same time thinking, "How long will I last?"
Losing your teeth, mobility and hair.
And if you're unlucky,
Just stuck in a chair.
The last days of your life.
The end of an adventure.
Who wants to end up in a 'care'
Personally, I'd rather be among
Many of those who have died young.
I'm not lying, either,
I'm telling the truth.
I like the idea of 'eternal youth'.
