Old age and youth

old age creeps up

slowly over the years

who ever wanted it?

elderly lady

good for nothing any more

just fill the coffin

all friends of granny

have lost their memory

and are crippled

granny sends postcards

to everyone on birthdays

you forget to call

man-made knees

after years of painkillers

what a relief

up and down moods

hormones racing wildly

teenage passion

young and innocent

no responsibilities

house or family
