Lessons in life part 11. Keep cool in a crisis

Lessons in life part 11. Keep cool in a crisis

A surprising shout when bending down
found eating lunch in my dressing gown,
a subtle limp as I leave the chair or
the moments when I stop and stare.

Pulling on jeans that just dont fit
or get them on and bust the zip,
the inch-long hairs of cheek and ear
when eyesight fails to be so clear.

The breathless stairs and dodgy knees
A balding scalp that wont re-seed
Been drinking like I did back when
to morning cries of never again.

The nagging need for a Harley D
Or fat gut pose with a flying V
All these trials one must endure
as mid-life turns to age once more.
