fall ing


I discovered the season's called FALL,
'cause ambition skips casting’s call.
rain and darkness
grumpy bark-ness
I sink like a skiff in a squall


Doctor! Doctor! Diagnosis?
It feels fatal — What? Psychosis!!!
extreme lethargy
has it’s way with me
Doctor says it’s the dreaded... HOUSITOSIS!


Get off your butt you silly old fool!
Go to the gym! Use a power tool!
Get on with life
Don’t ***** at the wife
—sawbones, (I'm thinking), ain’t cool


Plopping my butt on a bike, I went for a strenuous ride
Bike didn’t melt in the rain, nor did my glutinous hide.
loco potion
Now I pamper my health, with beer and munchies deep fried!

John: I recently read in the AARP newsletter an article about elder health. 2 things they stressed was not drinking soda at every meal and go light on cookies. So I've decided to stare death in the face. I drink sodas between meals, often to wash down my wife's lovely cookies. :o) Keep your words coming and share them with all of us on the soup. oldbuck

GOTD! (giggle of the day award). I like to find humor worthy of the GOTD! each day. Sometimes good humor is hard to come by around here. Sounds like we share some vices, as well as "Senior" status;-). Thanks for the chuckler. ~ j
