No Nursing Home for Them

No Nursing Home For Them

By Elton Camp

Joe is gray and seventy-five
Meg’s also old but still alive

Their Harley they still love to ride
Being old farts they can’t abide

Many people their age are put away
In some gloomy nursing home to stay

Joe and Meg, with a blast, their lives will end
What their children might inherit they’ll spend

He’s king of the road just as when a youth
Won’t stop because he’s long in the tooth

Meg, still foxy, holds on right behind
Being his “old lady” she doesn’t mind

They rip along through the open air
The astonished looks, they don’t care

There’s still lots in the world they didn’t see
Where the action is, that’s where they’ll be

Still living their lives to the full
Rejecting all that “too old” bull
