Hemingway Approach - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

a very big number
it is the number
associated with the population
of a small little town
It is the age of an older(not old) human being
It is the length of time that some towns
have been in existence for
but for me it is the number of poems
that I have written here on this earth
I hardly doubt I will ever reach one hundred years old
but you never know anything can happen
I'm more likely to take the Ernest Hemingway approach
for my ending and my exit stage left

    I have every intention of reaching 100 years old. I always tell my family this, they don't believe me but.......I know I will. Great poem. I hope you write hundreds more poems here too. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    If you correct the error on line eight you will be excused from taking the Hemingway approach.
    It's not pleasant.
    If you act as if you will reach 100 you most likely will. Look at Bob Hope, George Burns et al.
