Poem for the Older Set (NaPoWriMo17 7/30)

Poem for the Older Set

 

The proper term of respect

for my elders

is

“sexagenarian.”

 

Not that I want to think

about that

and the laughter swells

(even if they cannot)

with the words that

raise

the level of seriousness

awareness

of the problems

all men their age

must one day face.
