The poetry of Kris Mercer


Birthday verse

Life begins at forty.
                     Now isn't it a shame.
                     The mind is Oh so willing,
                     it's the body that's to blame.
You know you're getting older,
                     'cos people tell you so.
                     It also takes you longer,
                     to get from stop to go.
Never mind, it's not all bad.
                     It could have been much worse.
                     Instead of sending birthday cards,
                     they could have sent a hearse.
