On Aging

Relentlessly the years go by. As if it were an evil crime, Defensively I bravely try To fight the ravages of time. As if it were an evil crime, I'm giving age the old heave ho. To fight the ravages of time, The lines and grey will have to go. I'm giving age the old heave-ho, Defensively I bravely try. The lines and grey will have to go. Relentlessly the years go by. For Jared's Pantoum contest.

A terrific pantoum, Joyce. Let's both give old age the "heave ho" and try to enjoy our remaining years with a youthful spirit. I can certainly relate to this one, dear. Best wishes in Jared's contest. You're aces to me! Love, Carolyn
