    while in our teens everything is great
    at 20 - everything seems to be fate
    at 30 - we're in our prime
    at 40- we become sublime
    at 50- we go downhill
    at 60- we lose our will
    at 70- they say it's time
    at 80- we've lost our mind
    at 90- it's our time to go
    at 100- your guess is as good as mine
    but we're working overtime..will have to depart at destined time....loveedtoreadthe timetable....10

    read mine............fine without you

    Very nice and funny too. I have to agree and at same time have to disagree too. Even at 20 or 60 we shouldn't lose our will.You made me to break into laugh with your ending line which apparently is true. High marks to the creativity you had shown in this piece. (Report)Reply
