Nothing But Clothes - Poem by Dorsey Baker

They say
don't nothing get old
but clothes
but if you
listen to your body
its going to tell you
that is a lie!
you can cover
the wrinkles in your face
you can hide
the grey in your hair
but you cannot deny
what your body
is telling you
your body is going to
give you signs
you cannot ignore
you cannot
do the things you used to do
because
you just do not have the strength!
