My God that’s rash!

Did you think it through?

Are you sure it’s the proper

thing to do?

Take a pause

A big deep breath.

You know you’re prone

To rush right in.

Pause

Deep breath

Don’t just jump in.

Oh dear

Too late!

You did it again.

Now you’re sixty four

Now that we’re older still got my hair

Several years have passed

Grateful if you send me a valentine

Better still a bottle of wine

Hate staying out till quarter to three

Did I lock the door?

Though you don’t need me, will you still feed me

Now you’re sixty four?

I’ve got older too

But daren’t say a word

Want to stay with you.

I am still useless mending a fuse

When the lights have gone

No one knits sweaters by the fireside

Sunday mornings no time to ride

Doing the garden, digging the weeds

Who could ask for more?

Though you don’t need me, will you still feed me

Now you’re sixty four?

Every summer you can book a ticket for a long haul flight

Glad it’s not too dear

Got the mortgage paid.

Grandchildren on your knee

Coral, Blaze and Jade.

Send me an e mail, tweet me a tweet

Status, point of view.

Indicate roughly what u mean 2 say

Yours sincerely, tapping away

Give me your answer, filling a form

Takes for evermore

Though you don’t need me, will you still feed me

Now you’re sixty four?

Ho!

Circuitous

Circuitous, roundabout

Not straight to the point.

You kind of get there in the end

But by a tortuous route.

 

I’m not sure how ŵe got here

Or quite the route we came

We kind of made it in the end

Via your circuitous route.

 

I guess it’s the arrival

And getting here that counts

But how we got here I’m not sure

Circuitous the route.

PARSIMONIOUS

They called him parsimonious,

Miserly and mean

But didn’t know the life he’d led

The lean times that he’d seen.

 

The hard times made him careful

And canny with his cash

He’d rather money in the bank

Than spending that was rash.

 

You couldn’t call him generous

He’d rather keep his cash

But was he such a bad man

Or just shaped by his past?
