I tell you, it’s humbling – this processing years.
I used to be sturdy and durable.
But now I bruise easily, doddering nears,
and I know the slide is incurable.
It’s fortunate no one needs means – all my dears
are solvent and I’m not insurable.
But maybe I’ll land on a level plateau
and rally for more – I don’t know.
