Golden Years?
© By Grady L. Duncan 
11/10/01
Time has taken its toll, in the way its treated me.
The line has grown finer, between necessity and dignity.
From a very early age, I watched folks growing old,
until they reach the stage, when they totally lost control.
I've become less cautious, of the things I say.
Though I mean no harm, it sometimes seems that way.
I have a constant buzzing, and ringing in my ears.
Sometimes what is said, is not what I think I hear.

My memory has gotten so bad, I write myself short notes,
so I'll know how long, to cook "3 Minute Oats"
My hair is falling out.  I have already turned bald.
If it don't stop soon, I'll have no hair at all.
All of my doctors' offices, are such familiar places,
I address the nurses and doctors, on a first name basis.
I had a dental appointment, because I couldn't eat.
He said,"Leave your teeth on my desk, and go have a seat.
If I have to hold my water, it's very hard to do.
If I have to wait, it winds up in my shoe.
Because of another problem, I now wear "Depends".
If I get in a crowd, they make me set downwind.
I'm never left alone, since I started to stray.
I have to have a sitter, with me night and day.
Who named them, "Golden Years?" One thing I would bet.
The author of that term, hadn't gotten there yet.
