New Lease Of Life

Having grey hair aint much fun, There's no more races to be won, I sit in my rocker and snore away, Seem to do it most every day, I think I'm just about done. But wait a minute, my numbers came in, A three hundred thousand lottery win, I'm off to Paris and the Champs_Elysees, To chase mademoiselles that aint so grey, I'm already wearing an adventurous grin.

I came across a prestigious list of the top 100 most published poets here and I am not surprise. Your quality indeed goes hand in hand with your quantity. I'll check one or two more of your works because this has given me a unique satisfaction. I give you a handshake of a definite 7!
