When he was young, he use to look forward to a basketful of thrills.
Now he only looks forward to a basketful of pills.
He takes a pill for this and a pill for that.
Sometimes he feels like a lab rat.
He use to love to look at all the pretty beach honies you know.
Now all that he wants to look at are food cooking shows.
Funny at the same time sad friend

in this poem basketful, thrills and basketful pills are related to the time; the time is a real fact of the earthly life; from cradle to grave everywhere the time is entangled; in the mind of youth the entire universe is full of dreams and thrilling but the time is a land of decaying and the dreams/thrilling on the way of exhausting and mind of the youth reach to the stage of mind of old where different disease defeats the mind of youth and compels to enter into the basket of pills/
