Cruel Eld

Age has dropped a wrinkle here
And splashed a brown spot there
It’s put some flaps beneath my arms
And made my chin grow hairs
As my skin has thinned and dried
My ass has gotten fatter
Fortunately age has taught
That shit like that don’t matter
As long as I have eyes to see
And still a heart to feel
I can ignore the signs of eld
And keep it strong and real
It is my wish to dance and sing
To spend and never save
To love and eat, and drink too much
Go laughing to my grave
