The problem with old folks
is that not everything works as it should.
I don’t only mean the brain
which can become unscrewed
and need rewiring
Other parts get used up.
Some parts can be replaced,
but nothing works as well as it did
hearing aides, eye glasses and dentures are part of the norm
after a certain age
Spare parts become available
at great human cost,
the death of one can bring new life for another
One day no doubt
there will be more new miracle fixes
for us old folks
but please pass me by so that
I can get onto my next life time.
