We Are The Seniors - Poem by Dr. Mel R. Santos

I am not a good poet for seniors
My peers, observations I have
Seniors are recycled teenagers
Very big portion of well behaved

Senior power in politics' term
Very good dependable leaders
Paragon of experience all angles
Of life existence and go getters

Thy write, sing, dance, and babysit
Who say they are useless "Old Fogies"
If no "Old Fogies," no youth today
So lets be good to them day by day.

Another is their volunteering
Crocheting and also gardening
What more shall we expect our mentors
Youth - whole community counselors
