The Comedy Of Age - Poem by louis rams

The years are starting to catch up to me
Graying temples is what I see.
My youthful appearance has gone astray
As I turned the other way.

What happened to my younger years
When I was bold, brave and had no fears.
Has life rewritten every line
And I’ve fallen behind the times.

In my youth I left my mark
Now to old age I will embark.
I will kick ass - like I’ve always done
As long as I can get up and face the sun
And if the day comes that the sun no longer shines
It must have climbed up my behind.

Maybe it went to join I.B.S.
And is searching to give a test.
I will let old age pass
The same as I do with my gas.

I will let it blow in the wind
So you can have a whiff my friend.

(ha-ha father time welcomes you)
