A Poem: With Whom Will I Stay Young?

Val is a life-long practically oriented student of effective emotional and attitudinal responses to the many challenges of life.

With whom will I stay agile and young

once that all my baby-boomers are gone

maybe with crooners' songs now rarely sung

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

Those still alive refuse to inspire

pissed-off at life and in a poor health

having done their best for youth to expire

and missing the most their not attained wealth.

And yet young at heart can be seen here and there

honoring youth with no mention of expiry date

they are still around even though so rare

awakening to life, although if too late.

Some talk of their heroics with a shameless boast

others are pretending to be savvy and smart

even if looking like their father's ghost

well, what to expect from old fart.

Dean, Perry, and Elvis, what can I really say

you are stuck with a bunch of sour puss geezers

some of them still eager to laugh, and dance, and play

and most of them still looking fresh as if taken out of freezers.
