Living life at an old age,
On the verge of becoming a sage,
No longer have to earn a living wage,
As an underpaid hostage,
No longer have to act my age,
No longer want to be on the front page,
Sure like living offstage,
No longer need a socially ingratiating self-image,
Just might choose to go on a rampage,
And fight for peace, love, justice, and womenís suffrage,
Can appreciate the winterset of Fallís fallen foliage,
Lifeís ups an downs slip-sliding awayage,
But now that Iím in lifeís final stage,
I thank God for having had such a fine voyage,
A pleasantly pleasing pilgrimage,
From the beginning of life to an old age.
