Getting older



Dear Editor:

I told the good doctor

About all my aches and pains.

I told him how it happened

And showed him where it hurt.

He pushed and tugged

And had me move this way and that.

He squeezed and poked 

As I grimaced in pain.

I laughed “I’m no young buck anymore”

And he agreed with me.

He said “At your age

And your lack of activity,

You need physical therapy.”

“You’d best prepare yourself better

Before you go lifting and thrashing.”

I agreed with him, he was right.

I’m not getting old,

I’m just getting older.
