Reluctant Boomer


Susan Maree Jeavons

My knees wonít bend. My elbow squeaks.
I now have jowls where once were cheeks.
My hair is grey. My bosom sags,
and underneath my eyes are bags.
My memory is null and void.
My libido would appeal to Freud.
My teeth sit by the bed at night
Oh dear, I am an awful sight!
My body poots and burps and hisses
and if I sneeze or cough it pisses.
I am not ready for this final stage,
so please can we just skip old age?
