How Long is Looney?

If we live long enough

it’s gonna be rough.

Tell-tale signs of age

spoken off the cuff

betray us and oh

how long and how sad

will it get to be

before…until…we

write bad verse and

yet don’t hesitate

to remember to

meditate on what’s

gone before and what

lies ahead instead.

Hey nonny nonny,

honey, if it’s not funny

why do we laugh at

our forget-me-nots?

When will we touch base

and head for home?

Not funny, dammit,

unless you’re like me

Easier to laugh

than it is to pee.

Ha ha got you there

You expected “cry.”

I know poor taste

when ‘ere I try

and will until  my

looney runs dry.

Ouch!  Tell me I

didn’t write this…

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
