Life in the Slow Lane

Life in the Slow Lane

 

By Elton Camp



If you live past sixty, things slow down

So that it takes a lot longer to get around



And another thing that you will find, too

In turning out work fast, you are through



Instead of speeding when you drive

You will slow down just to stay alive



Working in the yard no longer is play

Just trimming the roses can take all day



Off your tongue, words don’t glibly slide

That you’ve forgotten names, must hide



But the thing that’s speeded up is that

Cake is quicker to make your belly fat
