Shh Grandpa Is Getting Old (limerick)

Updated on August 8, 2013

I wouldn’t say grandpa was old

An act this old coot would just scold

His hair disappeared

And what’s more than weird

Instead of a beard he grows mold

      Don't throw the old guy away,

      You would be a naive villain.

      Just scrape all the mold off the guy

      And sell to Big Pharma ... for penicillin.

      If you won't turn on the ventilation or expose him to fresh air, may I suggest that you archive grandpa. (I'm one too.)

      If I don't move around, I would probably get moldy too.
