Back to the sixties

Remember those demented discotheques
where we broke our necks dancing to the latest?
weren’t they the greatest?

And now we break our backs making tracks to the bathroom.

Time that knows us
slows us
and no use in us complaining.

And those that ‘cut a rug’ doing the jitterbug
went long before us.

I’m not ready yet,
