Eighty Is The New Sixty


Hundreds of us – thousands, and

We’re playing jazz, writing books,

Keeping our good looks with makeup,

Clothes, dyed hair and yoga,

Not worn out like grandma was.

Wrinkles yes,

But energy, that’s key;

And opportunity.

Problems philosophical are always there,

Have always been, will always be –

Faith, death, life’s intention.

There we are with house and pension,

All of our functions.

What a grace, compared to which

The wrinkled face means nothing.

Mind clear!

You’re here!

You’re reading this!

Great! Grateful, greet the day!
