Who will care where I lay?

June 22, 2019


Give me young and naive, anytime of the day;

getting wise as we grow old, is bollocks I say!


If at first you don’t succeed, don’t bother again;

learning by mistakes, is fools fodder for young men.


Recipes for long life are a marketing myth,

the longer you live, bones turn brittle and stiff.


Why wish to grow old, as those that left us will not,

Like old logs in a woodpile we wait for wood-rot.


Two questions are left, as our mind withers away,

will they remember, or even care where I lay?
