Doug “Rabbit” Sutherland, Minister of Reality

SEVENTY-SIX
My birthday was two weeks ago–
Three score and sixteen years!–
Which pushed me past the milestone that
Articulates slipped gears
And qualifies me clearly as
A doddering old fool,
Who’s lost all of his senses and
Subsists on prunes and gruel,
Whose cohort is identified
As puzzled and confused,
Who can’t remember falling down
Or how they got so bruised,
But still remember Dinah Shore,
And Packards that had fins,
And kisses at the drive in show,
And wars that all had wins!
It’s True! I’ve never been this old!
But, quote me when I say,
“I’ll never, ever be as young
As I am Now!–Today!”
