Gutman's Poem

by Reb Gutman Locks

Gutman's Poem


Clocks click

Time slides

Brains hide

Memory hushes

Skin dries

Hair falls

Mirrors appall

Stride smalls

Face wrinkles

Teeth blink

Height ducks

Ambitions taper

Activities sag

Bones narrow

Muscles droop

Voice creaks

Knees squeak

Body bends

Appetite dims

Doctors pat

Sex was

Sleep's paltry

And Heaven calls,

Yet, now's

the best years of 'em all.

Thank G-d
