NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE CHALLENGE

NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE CHALLENGE

(a POEM ABOUT AGING ADULT ISSUES)

Impotent man fights,

Although he’s dead…to rights…

Wants to relive

What the body can’t give,

Despite enticing sights.

Things just won’t respond

In ways of which he was fond…

Takes too much time

And excessive grind

To  “taste” what is gone !

–Jonathan Caswell

(An aging issues poem)
