Clocks click

     by G. Locks

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
