“We make out of the

quarrel with others,


but of the quarrel

with ourselves,



~ William Butler Yeats





does not

quarrel with themselves

could have, should have





why must I grow up

seasons of our discontent

choices, choices, luck




is there a reason, is there a rhyme

life moves on in spite of me

did I, could I, have missed my prime

did I learn nothing on my father’s knee


growing old is not an option

acting mature is a matter of opinion

steadily we rely more upon the naproxen

the hot toddy and a nap our best companion


been there, done that

I just can’t remember where or when

reduced to the trivial chitchat

the weather is the common denominator for all men


look in the mirror and have a good laugh

don’t take yourself so damn serious

a giggle a day will cut the aging in half

only God can explain the mysterious


Today is the only day we have to live

enjoy it on the positive, laughable,  side

try your hardest to better than just survive

sleep well my friend, saying I tried, I tried. . .
