The Spark !

The Spark !

Old age comes upon you

like a creeping weed or vine

a subtle early warning

that you're running out of time


When we realized it had us

firmly in its grip

we decided to go fighting

so we really let it rip:


No more early nights

sipping tea and watching telly;

we bought the 'Kama Sutra'

and really gave it welly !


We cruised out to Australia

it cost a bit of wonga

but on the dance floor every night

guess who led the Conga !


Our wardrobe was updated;

no more granny pants or macs

but though we tried to both wear thongs

we lost them up our cracks !


Now we're quite exhausted

financially as well

but the spark has been ignited

and death can go to Hell !

Thanks's still up there.
Maybe that's why I'll never get a hernia?

Thank you everybody.

I really did join the conga on board ship for Australia....the thought of that deed still makes me squirm in utter embarrassment.... how could I have sunk so low; must have been the duty free grog !

Take that old age! Thanks for this humorous and romantic reminder that getting older doesn’t mean to stop doing the things that makes us feel alive! ❤️

Good atitude, have lots of fun.

Phyllosan and Sanatogen - surely a recipe for a fill of the "san" - if
my schooldays' lingo for the sick bay serves me correctly. Note: I didn't say "serves me right!".?Now, a long long way from those days, I believe in "a little of what you fancy does you good".
