What to do, what to do

What to do!!
What to do!!
When the recalcitrance of youth
obstreperously plagues my aging,
refuses to allow a separation
between then….and now.

The daredevil of the mind
still seeks to challenge limits
stretch decreasing boundaries
limp at full speed toward a goal.

What to do?
What to do?
When youthful exuberance
overwhelms wizened wisdom
				shouting:
					”GET UP!!’
			  		 “WE GOT THINGS TO DO.”
