Those hairs like cotton in his ears
I wonder if he hears me
Well it appears he does if he cares-
But only just barely.
The skin of her face is creased in odd places
The picture in the dictionary listing of decay is
An understated her. What I'm trying to say is
Old age friggin' scares me.
And while I don't want to get boring and useless
To slurp applesauce and be haggard and toothless
Im pretty sure hanging to life by a thread
Is better than being successful and dead.
