Terrible 2's

At 2 kids are belligerently content
At 22 Overconfident
At 62 Settle like cement
At 102 a cryptic monument

    Enjoyed this witty write, Jon!:) The "Terrible 2's" has a way of spreading itself out over the years! I'm curious.about your avatar. Is it the green lantern, a mask, a shield? I'm happy you'd stubbled on that poem.:) Keep well! Mikki

    I must have slept through the 2's between 22 and 62. I don't plan to make it to 102. And haven't experienced any 2's between 62 and 102. I'm dating myself now.
