IF WE LIVE LONG ENOUGH

Published January 3, 2018 by Nan Mykel
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, not what

lies ahead instead.?

Hey nonny nonny,

COmmons.wikimedia.org

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.….                                Nan
