My Cup Runneth Over



My cup runneth over at age seventy-eight Will it ever slow down to give me a break Thought ahead when I was a younger man Love in my seventies was not in the plan However in my mind I'm as active as ever Always can be found searching for pleasure Pleasures we dream from a very young age Like a male of the species locked in a cage Wanting so badly to explore the landscape All too soon our manly prowess escapes We resign to the fact our bodies can't perform As when our youthful stamina was norm Minds are still active as they were back then But the body's changed, takes longer to ascend It's all part of life, this unparalleled journey But we manage to survive all the topsy-turvy © Jack Ellison 2013

    My cup runneth over... with dragon Fire! Dragon warms my morning coffee for me... in no time flat... isn't that sweet! As soon as I'm done with my coffee... I make him his second breakfast... Then sit down to write about him... At my age it's more the loveable things they do for me as I dish out my type of caring... a mothers love... Now Dragon... Put the barbecue sauce DOWN! My sneakers don't like it, and besides... you made the coffee too hot... I'm sipping as fast as I can! Honestly Dragon!
