An Ode to Old Age
Poetry in Age
There's quite an art to falling apart
As the years go by,
And life doesn't begin at 40.
That's a big fat lie.
My hair's getting thinner, my body is not:
The few teeth I have are beginning to rot.
I smell of Vick's Vapo Rub, not Chanel #5;
My new pacemaker's all that keeps me alive.
When asked of my past, every detail I'll know,
But, what was I doing 10 minutes ago?
Well, you get the idea, what more can I say?
I'm off to read the obituary, like I do every day;
If my names there, I'll once again start -
perfecting the art of falling apart.

Ode to Retirement
I can read and write and paint.
Can even aspire to be a saint.
I could travel, teach and tutor.
Share guide and mentor Someone.
You my friends can remain blind
Or see in me a New find
Making again a difference.
- Ramasami Natarajan
When a man retires and time is no longer a matter of urgent importance, his colleagues generally present him with a watch.

Retirement - It's All in How You Play the Game
Let's see now. How will I know when I am a senior.
Some places give me a senior's discount at 55, some at 60 and some at 65.
My government pension will be sent to me when I am 65.
My company will arbitrarily retire me at 65.
(I'm going to beat them to the punch and retire at 60.)
So that means that parts of our society think 'senior' begins at 55.
How will I personally know?
Well, with a little bit of luck, I don't think I'll ever know.
It's all in how you play the game, isn't it?
