The Mid-Life Crisis

The Mid-Life Crisis

By Elton Camp

It was at the age of forty-five
A new car Fred bought to drive

You might think he’d buy a sedan
In keeping with being a family man

He thought a convertible would be nice
Above the dash was a fuzzy pair of dice

He had “Mean Machine” put on the side
With painted, red flames, Fred did ride

So that anyplace that he would go,
He’d be called by chicks, “Daddy-O”

The problem was seen by Fred’s wife
It was a crisis brought by mid-life

After a few months, he settled down
And got his feet planted on the ground

Thirty years later, he did the same again
But this time he was too old to create sin
