Were 80 He’s Only 5

Were 80 Hes Only 5 long poem

Uploaded by Donald Francis

We Start every morning like the old Silver Fox
We get out of breath putting on our socks
We look in the mirror and make such a fuss
there’s two old people looking back at us

We stumble to the kitchen
take a handfull of pills
then Woodson walks in oh what a thrill
We brush his teeth, then we put ours in
This is the way our day begins

We get him all dressed and ready for school
Then we get dressed like two old fools
He catches the bus and looks so alive
Then we remember were 80 he’s only 5

We sit on the porch and talk of old times
of the places we went that didn’t cost a dime
We go in the house and watch some TV
and wonder whats happening to you and to me
Our energy gone and he don’t realalize
That we are 80 he’s only 5

Then Woodson comes home, his energy want quit
We take more pills, and just want to sit
He runs to the porch, and gives us high five
We try to remember were 80 he’s only 5

When bed time comes and Woodson lays down,
We tell him stories from all around
He listens to Wynkin Blykin and Nod,
Little Orphant Annie and the Wizard of Oz.
We give him kisses and hugs for the night.
Now his energy’s all gone, and sleep is in sight
And now he looks so sweet and alive
We have to remember were 80 he’s only 5
