It’s hard to look at aging

With hormones a-raging…

But easier still

To know you will,

But it will not be your youth upstaging!

For some of us, our prime

Was years ago in time…

We feel “kinda” squirrelly,

We got old too early

And missed out on those miracle enzymes!

For others, young love is ending,

(It hurts too much doing the bending)

That “empty gun”**

Is worn out son,

Don’t waste time in spending or pretending.

–Jonathan Caswell

**”empty gun”  is an analogy used in bawdier vaudeville routines.
