Old Age

Old age is a neat little trick
For people who never get sick.
But if you’re not well,
Old age can be hell—
As if you were hit by a brick.

    Isn’t this the truth. Feels like someone has been throwing bricks at me lately. Oh no, it is just the wind blowing frigid air.

      Beware! One day the brick may hit you! 🙂

  2. “But if you’re not well,”…That’s the question. Sigh.

    A neat playful take cleverly written on a serious matter!


  6. So true. It gets confusing when the state of being alternates, too. But we are grateful for the good days, and that we’re still this side of the root systems. LOL. My sister has started helpfully sending me notices about the increase in green burials for my pondering. Cackle. “I’m still here!” I say, like Papillon!

  7. There are a lot of bricks in my place, why can’t they pick someone else?

  8. That’s the way to go, “hit with a brick.” All in good time….

  9. aches and pains
    bulging veins
    never get old
    it’s awful
    i’m told

  10. I understand that feeling all too well!

  11. A common feeling here in Sun City.
