Some Folks Mature, But Others Just Get Old

Some Folks Mature But

Others Just Get Old

 

By Elton Camp



Many old people will mellow a lot

Not as quick with anger to get hot



And offence is not as quickly taken

Know others often are only mistaken



What matters most they come to see

From hurtful words they try to flee



But others only give in more to rage

Get more hateful with passing age



Relatives they delight to order around

On their face you always see a frown



What you do is viewed with suspicion

By one with a cranky, crabby disposition



“It’s just because they are old,” some say

But when young they were the same way



To treat them well, we certainly should try

But they make it hard to do without a sigh
