Love & Life, Then & Now


Love & Life, Then & Now

When I was young,
life was fast
and love was slow.

Now I’m old,
life is slow
and love is fast.

In the 1960s
girls wore miniskirts
and I wanted to see more.

Fifty years later
they wear leggings
and I want to see less,
much less.

“Oh!, So it’s my fault, huh?”
“You are the fault of my life,
and sometimes it has an earthquake.”

Gerrymandered expression is mandatory
to be loved by all, then and now.
I’m old, bold, cold, told and unsold,
so who cares?
