Man For His Age – a poem

    MAN FOR HIS AGE

 

Care-worn he leads

his guilt free life,

turns fears

into a bar-room joke –

 

he never fails

though sometimes falls

a victim to

“the changing times”.

 

Suburban heroes never weep,

they share with celluloid

an inability to bleed.

 

He veils his sorrows in

a sentimental song

and never sins –

 

his standards are complete

and up to date.

 

A true son

of a dying race.
