Trying not to be s trynosaur

Ready to fly off
die off,
boredom likes to kill.

People I have known
who’ve flown,
took the final bow
how I miss them.

Old men and memory
are taking me, but
I will resist them,

I have no time for old men
although the
ladies are quite sweet.

But it’s a numbers game
you’re in the frame behind
the eight,
however early
you’ll be late.

I count another wrinkle
or perhaps it’s just a crease,
one more fold,
a bit like origami
for the very
very old.

Happy that’s it’s Saturday
and now
I’m going out to play
