Why I Plan To Skip My 55th Class Reunion

Why I Plan to Skip My 55th Class Reunion

By Elton Camp 

We were “The Ones Who Really Rate”
That is to say, “Senior Class of 58”

At the 50th reunion, I got a bad surprise
I found that I couldn’t believe my eyes

It made me gasp and then almost choke
To see all those ugly looking old folk

Some too senile even to recognize me
Five years later, I’ll just let them be

I’m glad to say I’ve remained the same
The way most of them aged is a shame

Another reunion, why even try?
I think I’ll just pass this one by
