Stupid Old People

 

I used to be

young and stupid

now I'm just

old and stupid

 

being stupid

as a kid

is okay

it's kind of expected

and people cut you slack

 

but being stupid

as an old person is frowned on

people immediately think of Alzheimer's

then run and hide

 

stupid old people

get put off and put away

folks don't like to deal with them

they think if you just give them

a bed and a wall calendar

they'll be fine

 

they are shunted off

away from the family

away from the so-called smart people

who have no time for them

in their busy lives

 

it's a shame

we don't learn from those

who've been there

seen it all

 

I in turn, don't mind

being called old and Stupid

it's water off my back

 

and actually

it's a step up...

from what I used to be called

and which I can't repeat.

You can't put an old head on young shoulders, but you sure as hell can put a young head, on old shoulders.

I have had a face lift, trouble is now my belly button is between nipples just under my chins
