“How Old Are You”
You know you are hooked when you drive off the road because you can’t take your eyes off it.
It has been there for only a few seconds, minutes, moments, but it is long enough.
You tell your mate, check it out.
He doesn’t see it, you start to doubt.
But no, it’s there you see it plain.
It’s a shark chasing a crain.
It’s wings are spread, as it flaps in vain,
because close behind is the great white waiting to claim.
yes you know your too old when you can’t see the same.
I hope I never get that old.
