Creaky and Cranky


Inundated with
Creaky hinges
Afflicted by
Annoying twinges

Growing older
Infested with gray
Almost too tired
To kiss or play

Slowly becoming
Crippled and cranky
No longer swanky

Hard lines
Worn creases
Coming apart
In shreds and pieces

Losing thoughts
Oh what to do
Finding it difficult
To even chew

Getting older
Is so unrightful
Never do it
It is frightful!

  1. Hahaha I love this! I am getting there so I can relate 😉

    In other news, my muses have not been visiting me lately—I have not been writing to March prompts 😔

    1. Lol… I agree… Just gotta keep doing things that are fun and laugh a lot. I’ve found that’s the best way to stay young and be happy. Even through the wrinkles and graying hair. 😉


        1. Guess it depends on what you define as old. 😉 I’m 46, but many people don’t believe I’m over 30. I still feel 16 inside, and feel fairly young on the outside too. And they say, you’re only as young as you feel, so…. Lol 😉


Here's a shiny copper penny for your thoughts... ❤️
