A Couple of “Aging” Limericks on My 69th Birthday

by Joel Kravitz

Grow old gracefully? You must be dreaming.
My Peter Pan Syndrome is teeming.
If I may be so bold,
Here’s how I’m growing old…
I’m going kicking and screaming!

But Mother Nature’s not sold.
As the aging process begins to unfold,
Pain becomes aging’s curse –
Lasting longer, hurting worse…
Proving immature does not mean “not old.”
