by Gerard J. Surprenant

I feel old!
Not floor length beard and cane old;
Not double checking the will old;
Not like some man with a permanent seat
--------------on a park bench old;
But just cynically old!
Where I can't stand the music!
Where I can't stand the styles!
Where I worry about who will run things
--------------when I really do get old!
