Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

With whom will I stay agile and young

once when all baby-boomers are gone

just with crooners' songs, million times sung

and with bunch of memories of a life's sweet dawn.


Some boomers looking dead and forgetting to lay down

and some rushed to catch the first ride to their Maker

few moved to young families out of town

others already subscribed at a funeral caretaker.


This kind are talking of their heroics and mercilessly boast

with those old stories everyone knows by heart

even though they look like their father's ghost

but what else to expect from an ancient fart.


Those still kicking are refusing to inspire

being pissed-off at life and their poor health

they did their best for their youth to expire

while missing the most their unattained wealth.


Some of us are planning to show up late for our funeral

young in mind and in spirit beyond any faking

treating all our birthdays as just another numeral

foot glued to the gas pedal and never seen braking.


Well, Dean and Elvis, what can I say

looks like you are stuck with a bunch of geezers

still eager to laugh, and dance, and play

and still looking fresh like taken out of freezers.
