Age- Bring It On! ! !

Rating: 4.5
When I hit 80 I'll wear pink……
And I won't care what others think,
‘cause I'll be old enough to know
that I'm the boss of me!

I'll dance without shoes- in the nude,
and no one dares tell me that's rude.
I'll swear and cuss and drink neat gin,
and when I've done I'll start again.

I'll braid my hair, what's left of it
and take up smoking finest ‘shit'.
A tattoo on my cheek I'll ink
and just not care what others think!

I'll get vejazzles done ‘down there',
And wear short skirts so people stare.
Go clubbing till the morning light,
eat, drink and smoke
Get really tight!

I won't control the things I say
I might even decide I'm gay..
I'll swipe on tinder left and right,
and partay every single night

So bring it on-I want to age
and move up to this crazy stage.
Life's boring when you must behave,
Cause being young makes me a slave!
Age- Bring It On! ! !

May I add, one of the best comic poems I've ever read. Sense of humor, torpedoed ahead. Rule Britannia, always knew how to bring humor to a lofty head.

A poem like this can change and torpedo our " conservative" traditions that already don't exist for the young! But bring it on. Time someone liberated, the old! Very well written, much humor and truth, rebellion at any age. Different, original and unforgettable!

There is a similar top 500 poem. I like yours. I'm five years off 80, doesn't seem long away now. I still run and cycle. So, perhaps I can write a similar poem in twenty years. ++10

Oh, I needed a laugh. I'm not 80 yet but I find that when you're younger you try to please too many others. Now, I live to please myself. And yes, it feels so good at times to get a little crazy and dance naked, sing at the top of your voice. The squirrels don't seem to mind at all. And thanks for your recent kind comments about my poems. I always appreciate them. And.....don't hurry old age; it gets here soon enough.

Yes I know what you mean! I'm a way off that age also but I have found that the older I get..the less I care about the 'niceties'in life and it makes me strangely happy! I love the thought of maybe becoming a little eccentric...after all I was a hippie in my youth..maybe when we reach 80 we should set up a commune for the 'I'm living my life for me! ' community.. but happy to take my time reaching it in the meantime...Thanks so much for your comments Chris..always much appreciated x
