Don't Die From Old Age - Poem by Francie Lynch

Don't die from old age,
It's illegal.
You'll be arrested,
Jailed for a life sentence
With no parole.
You must die from cancer,
Or some other acceptable
And legal disease,
But not old age
With blunt sight,
Withering bascilli in windpipes,
Conflicted consciousness
Unsteady steps.
These must be symptoms
Of a greater malaise.
Take heart,
You cannot die from old age.
