Old Age

Pepped up with pills and various potions


Zimmer frame ready to help forward motion


Wired for sound and to aid dicky ticker


Capsules to slow it - or make it go quicker


Now where's my bifocals to help me to see


- and all this just so I can go for a wee.

I know this one`s about me, but It`s no use postin` these little praise-poem tributes up to try and get round me.

I still don`t forgive you for preferrin` that young guitar - playin` troubador.

Yes - because the reason you went may not be there by the time you get there :)

Nice springy rhythm!
