Workaholic, alcoholic, melancholic,

In youth there’s time for fun and frolic.

Rheumatitis, arthritis, bursitis,

As we age

They sneak up and in the ass they bite us.

From youthful pro-creation,

To aged degeneration,

The years add up - despite us!

Paton Lodge Lindsay

(Detritus – accumulations arising from fragments; broken off worn out pieces; debris)
