Age of Age

Age of Age

A Chapter by Dave Brown




Each day I get older and can’t avoid

Millions of brain cells, being destroyed

Muscles that once, handled great weight

Heading toward a much different fate


What I need is to work out and diet

With weight to lose, thought I would try it

So, down to the gym I wobbled next day

Unfortunately, I passed a buffet


Sweet smells made me first look

Then iced cakes, threw out the hook

Those sore feet, which I oft’ curse

Stopped to engage in donut commerce


Oh, the scent, from heaven above

Sent to me by all the foods that I love

Custards, donuts and icings of color

Such sweets have made me a desert lover


But I desisted, with great regret

My body condition required that I sweat

I’d be pumping iron by the end of day

Turning from temptation, I struggled away


At the gym as I bent over and lifted

My backbone into the seating shape shifted

Stuck in that position I was carried away

And perfectly reseated at the buffet
