Is this old age…?


My joints ache,

My head throbs,

My back is twisted,

All I can do is sob…


Cracking my knuckles,

Said to be good when I was young,

What little I have in my pants,

No longer can I be called hung…


My sense of humor remains,

At least I have a few left of my brains,

Sometimes I do look in the mirror with a feeling of disdain,

But what the hell, I am still quite cute, pinchably chubby cheeks,

Both in the south and north, pregnant though I may look,

If that were the case I would only have to write ONE book…
