Last of the Ages of Man

Not hearin' right is no laughing matter. Return to <Poems and Stuff>

Knowin' you're talking just makes me sadder.

I say "Huh?" but gatta tend my bladder,

Before you can say it again.

Surely my thoughts are all allegory.

Thinkin' often of goin' to glory.

Sayin' a poem or over-told story.....

Last of the ages of man.

Now I don't want you all to get me wrong.

I love my life, and I'm livin' it strong.

Livin' and writin' just where I belong.

I'm probably my biggest fan.

Hey, I am just kiddin', puttin' you on.

I sure am laughin', not aging alone.

In touch with good friends by I-net and phone.

Rememberin' where it began.
