David Darbyshire

Rookie (6/11/54 / Darwen England)


Man Oh Man.............
You know your getting old
When ya really feel the cold
A shivering little mass
Very pink looking ass
Your nose is bright red
And cold like I said
I am not going outside I'm gonna stay in my warm bed
Let dreams of eating more salad run through my head

    Funny how easy it is for younger folks to dread getting older, but when you finally get there, I promise you, you will love every minute of it! Consider the alternative! ! (Report) Reply
