That's What We'Re Living For - Poem by vince gullaci

In old age
all good people
end up
living in a pound
good doggies
to be put down
at the lost and found.

    Yes, Vince, sadly, whether good or otherwise; but at least my pound is in a glorious piece of countryside freed of social rictus! Rgds, Ivan (Report)Reply

    Sad, but true. I guess there was a time when we took care of our aging population with more compassion. (Report)Reply
