"But the more I know the less I know"

Transcendental Sonnet #1420:

Young at Any Age


I have punctured egomaniacs

Spun some hard-right wackos on their backs

And mostly enjoyed the to and fro


But the more I know the less I know

The less some know the less this is so

They know it all and they always will


These are the people who make me ill

And why I hang out with kids these days

Since they are not so set in their ways


Those who are young have an open mind

Young at any age they leave behind

The stupidities which enslave these

Prematurely ossified lost souls

Who preach doom and gloom from their black holes


+Steven Curtis Lance

Yes it is easy to fall into the age trap but I think as writers and poets it is our job to spread the word that age is in the heart and soul not in the wrinkled skin and lost hair. Good write old friend and that is when old is nice.

Hanging out with the younger generation is fun, till they start to call you "sir" or "mister" or even worse, "old fart", then its back to hanging out with the "older farts"...LOL, Ed
