Post 58

I’m A Mean Old Man

Art58

Filled out paperwork

At the doctor’s office

Today

Under age, I wrote 50

And I realized

How much of my life is gone

No puppies to play with

No ball games with dad

I Don’t like kittens

Or long walk in the sand

Not me

I’m a mean old man

Just give me some soda

A cheap cigar

And leave me alone

In my old folks home

Your games and small chatter

I really can’t stand

Not me!

I’m a mean old man

Don’t play hip hop music

Or drink until dawn

Don’t have any big parties

Or leave the lights on

I’m nobody’s friend

And nobody’s fan

Not me!

I’m a mean old man

Yes there were days

When luck came my way

Fortune and romance

Then lost to pure chance

I don’t need love

Or any companions

Not me!

I’m a mean old man
