A Little Age Change Wage!

The cat hears humans say they don't change even if life were to rearrange. For some that may be true, as they whine in mommy's basement all the day through. But for others we shall see. Change sure comes, for better or worse, to thee.

Add a day.
Add a year.
Much will play.
Cheer or fear.

Each an add.
Each a loss.
Change is had,
Comes like moss.

Grows more cold.
Grows more happy.
Truth be told,
May get more yappy.

Less is more.
More is less.
Damn the chore,
Leave the mess.

More days behind.
Less days ahead.
Some mean, some kind,
Time has sped.

The less you care.
The more you do.
Either way you're aware,
What others think of you.

More grumpy, more bitter.
Less selfish, less about me.
Can sure take to Twitter,
Or just let it be.

A decision here.
A decision there.
Change is near,
Whether or not aware.

A little more of this.
A little less of that.
Could be bliss or hiss,
Or some extra fat.

Change shall grow.
Change shall come.
Unless, you know,
You just sit on your bum.

I suppose it will come then as well. For you may get wide as Hell. That is some sort of change, right? Change sure happens whether or not we want it to take flight. Age brings it along and we may sing a new song. May not always be a good one and could hurt the ears a ton. But I'll leave that to the singing bass. Now I have to get Pat to change the litter of my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  2. A Little Age Change Wage!
    Without cause it'll keep pace
    Change a little
    Not to belittle
    Just so it'll not create a rage

  4. And if we don't change, we wonder why we are in a rut. It's interesting how life unfolds. I recommend living long enough to experience it. lol

  12. It's true that the less you care, the more you do.
    Those who "could care less" are stupid ones too.

    1. And the less you give a crap, the more crap you can take
      Sounds counterproductive but works at any rate

  24. Age is one thing we can't change,
    Although growing old is full of fears.
    But life is for living each new day,
    So be happy and dry those tears.

  27. Change is the constant human condition. Right now I'm trying to adjust to that phase in life when I have "More days behind. Less days ahead." It's a slowly growing realization that has suddenly mushroomed in my mind. You have to surf the change and make the most of every wave. Life is a gift.
