Aging is an annoying house guest
Who is forever engaged in a quest
He visits without prior behest
And stays put beside you in your arm rest
He has a way of getting your address
Even if you move places so he can’t keep abreast
An inevitable visitor who seeks to divest
All youthful zest even if you do protest
He arrives with a large travel chest
Filled with lots of odious screen tests
Doing his darned best to keep you under house arrest.
By the time he leaves, there’s nothing left but eternal rest.
