Shooting Your Age


The week’s four line poem came to me after watching a recent HBO Special called “If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast.” The cast featured Carl Reiner who is 95 and a bunch of his friends (and a few others) who are 90 and over. Since I’m 81 and still an avid golfer, while watching I though about shooting my age. Here is what I came up with,

Stay out of the rough,
But just to make sure . . .
Live long enough!
