Coping with Old Age – Inchcock Style
Wrote in SuPport of the fethaurus Users league
Like Corona Virus and wee-weeing, it comes to us all,
Like dizziness, madness and having many a fall,
You can’t prevent it, like a rainy squall,
It’ll come, Summer, Winter, Spring or Fall,
You might be having rumpy-pumpy, or playing beachball?
Football, tennis, baseball, trying to throw a curveball,
Or you could be summoned to the guildhall,
Nowt will stop ageing, for eternity, you may trawl,
But as I say, it doesn’t matter at all,
Ailments, disabilities, agony to recall,
Life is just a struggle and a brawl,
Unfairness, those who seem to have it all,
Money, good looks, who lives are a ball,
Even for them, live will stall,
Death is perfectly natural,
Mind you, them who live at Balmoral,
Though, lacking in some moral,
Live longer, that’s connatural,
It’s us commoner’s, with no collateral,
Who was accepting our being visceral,
But death, well, it’s gone viral,
For the underprivileged, hopes, are not transferable,
Though, commitment is not endurable,
Life is not so cheery, easy, or affable,
Things can get so bad, death is advisable,
But still, you must admit, it can be laughable!
I wish that humour was bequeathable,
And seeing the future was browsable,
Wouldn’t it nice, if death was cancellable!
Just a thought! – I had one in 1958 as well!
