Age Agitates And Precipitates Pressure - Poem by John Sensele

As age advances
The body begins to weaken
Meltdown pounces
With no warning spoken
Grey hair multiplies
Osteoporosis sets in
As loss of calcium applies
With or without sin
Aches in limbs
Dysfunction in an organ
Inconvenience it seems
Tots its gun
Ready to pull its trigger
Signalling helter skelter health
With frayed figure
That irritates to death
A once svelte silhouette
Swaggering about sprightly
Tearing to pieces etiquette
Brashly,mightily, tightly
Cutting to size self esteem
Communicating a morbid message
Uninterested in a whim
When Peter Pan manipulates time passage
Forever young
Forever vigorous
Living life with a bang
Daring the rigorous
Time flow
Time challenges
Time glow
Time meninges.
