โ€œDEATH BY OLD AGE AND BITTERNESS!โ€*๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

โ€œDEATH BY OLD AGE AND BITTERNESS!โ€* a poem. 07/02/2018 Monday [again]!

โ€œYOUโ€™RE GONNA DIE, AN EMBITTERED OLD MAN – BECAUSE YOUR LIFE DOESNโ€™T-CONFORM TO MY PLAN!โ€

Thatโ€™s pretty close to-what SHE said to me,

When-she-left-my-venue,

Of INSANITY!

Itโ€™s just a little something,

Girls-Iโ€™ve-adored,

HAVE LEFT ME WITH!

My Sweetie roared:

โ€œI donโ€™t feel well, and youโ€™re to blame; your life and family – are silly and lame!โ€

โ€œBUT – I LOVE YOU!โ€ I said (pause) in reply,

And then she SPAT – in my bloody-old-manโ€™s-eye!!

โ€œYou-know? I MIGHT-be-beyond-bitter-and-old-age, ๐Ÿ™‚

For-I-was-born-OLD – and-bitter,

But NOT sage!!

For-I-ainโ€™t-got one bit of sense-or-reason!โ€

{Thatโ€™s why my lady accused me of TREASON!}

Iโ€™m TOO โ€œpeople-pleasing;โ€ or I have no back bone,

And – Iโ€™m-too-dang –

METHODIST!

No-wonder-Iโ€™m-alone!!

Anyway – SHE (1) snarled, (2) bit my face and (3) knocked me out,

But I RECOVERED! THERE WAS NO DOUBT,

That-I-would-reply, like the dope I be:

โ€œHONEY! Iโ€™M-OLD-AND-BITTER!

BUT YOU HOLD โ€˜THE KEY!โ€™* โ€œ
