The Uninvited Guest…

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.

  3. Jaqueline this is a wonderful and creative presentation of the Daily Word prompt.
    I think old age (I’m glad you made this unwanted visitor a he!) leaves behind him either eternal rest, or eternal turmoil – depending upon where our spirit beings will spend eternity. Thank you for this lovely post. I love the wonderful image that you’ve used too!
