1) Prayer for Senility
God grant me the senility
to forget the people I never liked anyway,
the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
and the eyesight to tell the difference.


2) Don't Worry
At age 20 we worry about what others think of us;
At age 40 we don't care what they think of us;
At age 60 we realize that they haven't been thinking of us at all.


3) My Rememberer
My forgetter's getting better
But my rememberer is broke
To you that may seem funny
But, to me, that is no joke


 4) No Fair
Life is indeed grossly unfair
Now I’m older and still have my wits
I’ve finally got me head together
And my body is now falling to bits


5) Cacophony of youth tries to impose brown hairs
through an all grey head.
But perpetual dreams have given way
to unmet desires and blighted visions.
Grey is softer and more forgiving.
Maturity is an acquired taste.
