Birthday party among old people


My 67th Birthday, Matlacha, Florida



Once I vamped for Julius Caesar

Now I'm just a wizened geezer


sitting out on the lanai

watching pelicans fly by


drinking stale Long Island wine

which like me is past its prime


listening to my hoary friends

contemplate impendent ends


cancer, dementia, ALS,

bodies failing, minds a mess,


though our span of days be few

we're going out for barbecue.

This is truly funny… Cracks me up. But, on the serious side, you are far too young to be out to pasture yet. Maybe it's the Florida got you. ;-)

Cracks me up how you put this under action-thriller. It is, indeed, an adventure becoming the 'hoaryite'. A good blend of funny and serious. Now ... about vamping with Julius Caesar ... do you have any pictures?
