Getting older

Getting older is no fun at all
getting reminded to take your geritol
kids never visit only when they need money
they don't remember that you wiped their nose when it was runny
See, your kids are making plans to put you in a nursing home and throw away the key
only to forget about you and take all of your money
spending it on their selfish materialistic cars and houses
it finally dawned on me, i raised a bunch of lazy louses.
