THE MAN OF A CERTAIN AGE

THE MAN OF A CERTAIN AGE

A Poem by DIVYA
"

All in good fun

"
Okay 

the man of a certain age is so sad

at a stage where he’s neither here nor there

trying to look ‘n sound like a lad

with his balding pate ‘n falling hair

 

he gazes woefully, at the rolls on his belly 

that was once so hard ‘n slim ‘n trim 

he feels his wee wee desperately

which is now the softest part of him 

 

'tis a hoot, he is still sixteen 

while women his age have turned to hags

he’s sure of c0ck and full of beans

cocking a snook at menopausal bags

 

talk of the c0ck, there were those days

when he’d get it up, more than three times

but now its just on his lady’s birthdays

or on the Big Ben’s yearly chimes

 

No graying pains for him, he shines

with his florid face ‘n puffy waistline

farting his way through, smelling bovine

his grisly butt, a pudding so fine

 

this over-the-hill Adonis, jiggly b00bs ‘n all

is god’s greatest gift to womankind

praise him ladies, for still standing so tall 

and do not his silly, fatuousness mind

And they say men have no imagination thinking themselves the “gift” but can no longer see their wee wee or feet... while I had to chuckle at your poem Divya, there is also no small amount of truth in these lines... there is more than a dollop of humour to be enjoyed here...

Thank you very much for laughing with me, Redzone 😄!
LOL I just turned 50 so I am on the other side of the slope:) I can look at it as I have already reached the Zenith and I can throw down the toboggan and glide gracefully down the hill you younger folks are busy trying to climb I will of course have lots of rope to throw down to you younger folks by way of poetry and heART, so perhaps they can enjoy the peaks views a bit earlier:) But of course as I glide down the other side of this mountain my memory will fail and the views might get obscured by tree or a sudden crash hopefully I will be able to remember by way of someone else's lines:) I used to tease my sister about getting older the freedoms of it I can wear neon argyle thigh high socks and ill fitting plaid jackets by way of winter coats I have no pretenses nor need of proving anything anymore I can walk into a room c**k sure and not by way of my members prowess mind you but in the way of been there did that I earned my razorback streaks and survived the climb way:) all I have left now is a bunch of love and Bunny Wisdom and a need to share it however I can and I wont quit till I have spent every drop then they can throw me in a hole and plant a tree over my well used bones!

An old guy has to feel his wee wee desperately. Can't get anyone else to do it.

Of course... I totally relate to what you say, my friend 🤗
Regarding your author's note ..."No."

With any - ANY - thought at all ...this one is just sooo mean and paints EVERYONE of us (even children) hurtfully. As a satire it covers any conception without exception - What's eaten, worn, used, thought, done and why NOT. Religion, profession, age, life, even death is coverable.

Yes indeed, advancing years combined with gravity does tend to pull everything south but like the emperor wearing his new suit, he's the only one who cannot see nor accept reality, sweet sixteen is far past many years since .. 🦉

There was more than a dollop of humour here DIVYA, you had me with a wide grin. Coming so soon after Gee's menopausal women, this was a delight to read and a case of the shoe being on the other foot! There was more than an element of truth here and I recognised one or two characters that have crossed my pathway over the years. Ha ha. Well I am so pleased to report that my dear husband does not fit this bill. Well penned dear poet.
