If you’re a cheese or a wine
It’s okay to age, but humans
don’t want to be told that they’re
old, so be bold, try something new.
Now that you’ve reached retirement age,
feel free go on zip lines, airplane rides,
and to have a passionate love affair.
Prove to your peers that you’re
not too old for adrenaline to flow
in your aged and clogged veins.
Snow skiing and mountain biking may
be harder for any with so many aches
and pains caused by years of wear and tear,
but there are easy activities for weakened
muscles and bones that probably got that
way from watching TV all day.
If sex is just a memory and little blue pills are
of no use, get out of your chair and jump from
an airplane, or raft down a whitewater river
to jumpstart your life and libido so you’ll live
until you die instead of drying up inside to
become mummified while you’re still alive.
