Aging

So I appear to be getting older
With more greys than blond for sure
With creaky joints and eyes that aren’t
So focussed anymore

And I see my midline growing
That – I don’t like, I confess
Whilst my heart’s a flipping nuisance
With AWOL beats from stress!

It also takes a little longer
To get from a to b
To mow the lawn or walk the dog
Or even make the tea!

Yet the culprit for these issues
Appears not to care a jot
Just sits there by his armchair
Almost rooted to the spot!

He never lifts a finger
Nor offers to assist
Moreso waves his arms in circles
To ensure no second’s missed

And to drive the point home further
He calls out to ensure
That hourly I’m reminded of
Time knocking on my door!

For whilst I am but human
And aging is my destiny
His face simply never changes
And he stays all wrinkle free!

His frame remains in-tact
Age makes no odds to him
He never gains an ounce of fat
And really stays quite slim

And so long as he’s wound daily
His ticker tick tick tocks
For you see the bane of all my aging woes
I blame on Grandfather Clock!

Leap Second Logic

Oh my god I’m so excited
For at midnight today
We’ll get an extra second
With a leap second delay
As time stands still so briefly
A moment to take stock
Whilst all around the world we’ll halt
The tick tock of the clocks!

Yes that’s an extra sixtieth
Of a minute to
Maximise and make good use of
Extending life for you
A jiffy or an instant
That you won’t get again
But don’t go losing sleep if you
Stay put, in bed remain!
