Freeing the radicals

jeez
yesterday I was five and now I am sixty-five, well almost and that’s nearly ready to throw it all in and give up the ghost, but before then I shall be fifteen again, oh can you remember how those hormones flew around your system,
I can
and now they crawl like a baby
or more like an old man,

anyway tomorrow
I may
be twenty-two
it’s all in
what we do and
how we go about
doing it.
