Age Concern
Age Concern.


If you want the advice of and older man

Then smoke and drink as much as you can

Eat all the thing they tell you, you shouldn’t

Do all the things a health freak wouldn’t


For frankly the alternative stinks for you

Incontinence, flatulence, impotence too

Having your bum wiped by immigrant labour

Is hardly a prospect that one should savour.


Sat in a chair only able to dribble

Eating soft food co’s you can’t even nibble

No get up and go, no more will to fight

Bugger that chum, best go out like a light.

I couldn't agree with you more, mate. The cold, hard fact is, few of us are going to last a ten decades. Lauren Bacall  hassmoked like a chimney all her life, and she's almost a hundred. Bogie died of cancer many moons ago. I would rather go out doing the things that give me pleasure, than to buy another twenty years by living in fear of doing anything unhealthy. I could say a lot more about this subject.....len

I agree absolutely. If its a choice between three pints a day for the next ten years or ten dry years followed by ten years in the granny farm I am going to go out in style:-)

Hahaha.  Only you could write a poem like this!  The ridiculous thing is you're probably right!   David
