“ Belligerents ” ~ upstart to old fart ~

 

They transform,

From newborn

To unformed,

Pending attain

The far reaches

Of misinformed,

As egotistic upstarts

Soon reflect as norm,

So till transmogrified

To realm of old farts,

In a state deformed

Beyond any reform,

Ne’er falling short

Of such belligerence,

Becomes an adroit art

For carping such retort,

Much like a toxic dart!

 

“ Growing Young ” ~ the while I age ~

 

As I grow young

The while I age,

My body older

Does engage,

The time it takes

To be the sum

I mean achieve

Unloading vain,

As clearer sense

I attain,

Tho fractioned be

To some extent

It does explain,

Old borders suffer

One’s being bolder,

Than growing old

The while young!
