Old Age, When? - Poem by Kurt Hearth

At what designated point,
does society consider a citizen old?
Is one chronological period designated?
Positive productivity ceases contributing?

What then shall be done with this issue?
Should an elder's creative contributions,
conclude not, but continue beyond established point?
Is it therefore acceptable, to re-examine protocol?

Is the gift of Wisdom, as well?
One's acquired ability,
to accept facts and standards.
Conclude and present, before all, no matter when?
