Senior Moments

Muscles pull, knee joints pop.
Memories sometimes fade.
Age is a heartless thug.

Simple tasks, putting on
socks and shoes, pose a threat.
Muscles pull, knee joints pop.

I won’t go to the store
without a list because
memories sometimes fade.

Sixty the new forty?
Don’t believe what you read.
Age is a heartless thug.
