70’s poems

when I’m 70

I intend to write poems

that reflect a life well lived

with some regrets

half hidden humour

about how our plans

are just that

there will be tears fears


hints about illnesses overcome

love sex lust failure

with some wins

enough to provide

energy to go on

no tips advice motivational speeches

on how to live your life

tho’ there will be maps

here be traps the dragons

potholes in the road

on a map a road

you can never

walk upon
