AN ODE TO AGING

Last month I applied for and received my Medicare card;
what's that all about?

My knee hurts;
right now, yesterday, tomorrow, all the time.

In the past few years, I've had:
two surgeries, a tooth pulled, root canals, a bunch of minor injuries.

I got new glasses last June and as of about three months ago I can't see worth sh*t; the eye doc says I need cataract surgery.

I feel young when I get up in the morning;
until I look in the mirror, or at my 40-something "kids."

I bike all over town;
but everyone else passes me on the hills, which aren't very steep.

I guess I'm aging. Oh well. It happens.
What's comforting is the knowledge
that all of you are going there with me!
