May you live long, Mr. Scott!

Updated on May 6, 2015

Believe me or not,

There was Mr. Scott,

He was in his eighties,

Ladies found him very hot.


He had muscles like rock,

Very fast he could walk,

Always smile on his face,

Very softly he could talk.


His skin was very tight,

with no wrinkles to fight,

No sign of grey hair,

His vision was bright.


He could write very well,

Had many stories to tell,

And in fact his story books

had a big sale.


Bachelor was he,

Reason he had told me,

Didn’t want to get tied up

but remain always free.


Then one fine day,

So people say,

He fell in love very quickly

with young Miss Leigh.


She proposed to Mr. Scott,

It’s time for their knot,

That without him

her life would just wrought.


They got married very fast,

And when I met Mr. Scott last,

He said he was very happy

‘Yes, marriage was a must.


‘You see my wife is very sweet,

Sweetest you can meet,

I have to live long many years

So soon I won’t quit. ’


‘Are you planning for children ? ’

the moment I asked,

He laughed very loudly

Said ‘That’s a must.


First baby is on the way

to make our great day,

And the second one next year

for sure I can say.


Two children- that’s enough

That’s our plan.’

He laughed, patted my back,

To catch his train he ran.


Mr. Scott, with two children,

is still going strong.

Today is his eighty fifth birthday,

May he live long!
