GETTING OLD

 

 

                                                                                  GETTING OLD

 

 

 

Here is a story about getting old

One that I think you should be told

First your skin begins to wrinkle

And your eyes soon lose their twinkle

Then arthritis soon begins to set in

That is when the pain starts to begin

Then your back begins to ache

And the pain killers you start to take

Then your memory forgets to recall

Then you start to shrink and get small

Then your hearing begins to fade            And now you need a hearing aid

Going to another room something to get

By the time you get there for you forget

Now your tummy turns to blubber

And begins to bounce like rubber

But so as not you cause distress

Everything else I will let you guess

So now that I have you told

Try to avoid getting old.

If you must I ask you please

Try slipping into it with ease.
