record breakers

Record Breakers. 
He is 100 and five spends his time in bed his family 
come up to his room and clean him up, he is windy
and it smells like a Chinese egg buried underground 
for fifty years. And to think Chines eggs are supposed
to be a delicatessen eaten only by the rich.
He can’t read anymore but like to look at pornographic 
pictures which make him cackle as it triggers off 
a memory of a distant past.

He was never a paragon of virtue smoked and drank  
a brutal criminal who spent much time in prison.
All this is forgotten now his family, although they think
he is disgusting, want him to be in the Guinness book 
of records as the longest living man.

    I don't know what to say - except the last line is a tell-all.
