These are a few of my Old Ageing ThingsA Poem by Norman223
My version of "Happy Birthday to Me"
Creaking and aching from sundry rheumatics .
Finding your memory's now quite erratic.
Trying to think where you've put anything .
These are now due to that old-ageing thing.
Struggling to lace up your shoes without falling.
Complaining that everything modern's appalling.
Tinnitus making your head and ears ring'
These are more views of that old-ageing thing.
Having to read books in large print editions
Struggling to rise from a sitting position
Then being too late when the telephone rings
But it's hard to eschew these old ageing things
When you're feeling
