How to Know When You Are Getting Old

How To Know When You

Are Getting Old

 

By Elton Camp



Well, there is longer room for any doubt

When the senior discount is asked about



If your little black book somehow came

To have nothing but the doctor’s name



A dripping faucet isn’t just an irritation

It engenders immediate need for urination



Because of pain, you feel much less delight

And whatever doesn’t hurt, won’t work right



Open a newspaper and it’s with great speed

That the obituaries you will begin to read



Glean in your eye isn’t due to passing lasses

But is a reflection of the sun off your glasses



Your are certainly getting well along in life

If the gray-haired lady you help is your wife



Yet another thing that will drive you wild

That middle-aged person is your own child



Old age has about caught you, it is so true

When your back goes out more than you
