Mick Jagger

To say Mick Jagger
Lost his swagger
Wouldn’t be the truth;
But all his zeal
Has less appeal
Than it had in his youth.

His rooster strut
And vanished butt
Still worked the Garden stage;
But just one look
Was all it took
To see the toll of age.

It’s fine to rock
Around the clock
As long as you still can;
But younger folk
Would rather croak
Than lust for that old man.

Is there a time
When, past his prime,
A rocker packs it in?
You’d think he’d know
The time to go
Is ready for a spin.

But folks still cheer
This buccaneer,
Though weathered he may be;
If I could pick,
I’d not choose Mick – 
He’s way too old for me!

    Sad but true... this reads like a limerick series. Your variety of rhythms and spot-on rhyming are a delight to read and review. Well done!! Best wishes, Keith

    You could say he's worn his face a few times. But I like him. :) Enjoyed your poem though as usual. :)

    I have never seen the Rolling Stones live although I did once own one or two of their recordings. I have had poetry published in Aim, Alura, StrangeRoad, Beyond Bree, Jews in Space, Jewish Space, Judaism and elsewhere. Enjoyable poem! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Lol, oh Ilene, you are too funny! I like "he's way too old for me". He is still strutting, isn't he? Love it.

    All of those rockers who spearheaded the British Invasion of the sixties are either too old or dead. Two or three later generations have come since and are making waves on this side of the pond. Good interesting write about Monsieur Jagger.
