Dr. Seuss Golden Years Poem


I cannot see

I cannot pee

I cannot chew

I cannot screw

My memory shrinks

My hearing stinks

No sense of smell

I look like hell

My body’s drooping

Have trouble pooping

The Golden Years have come at last

The Golden Years can kiss my ass


Enjoying One’s Age in the Later Stage
