An older outlook on life.
 



GREY HAIRS 

I NEVER NOTICED THAT BEFORE. 

YOU'RE GETTING GREY HAIRS AROUND YOUR EARS? 

HOLD ON A SECOND. 

THERE'S ANOTHER ONE OVER THERE. 

IT WON'T BE LONG NOW. 

YOU POOR DUMB BASTARD. 

YOU'LL END UP LIKE ME. 

YOUR YOUTH, 

A FIGMENT OF YOUR IMAGINATION. 

DON'T LET THIS BOTHER YOU. 

IT HAPPENS TO US ALL. 

THE GOOD NEWS IS YOUR GAINING WISDOM. 

ENOUGH TO KNOW, 

THAT TREASURES OF GOLD ARE NICE, 

IF YOU CAN FIND THEM. 

BUT A GOOD LAUGH LASTS FOREVER. 

MY ADVISE TO YOU IS SIMPLE ENOUGH. 

GET YOURSELF A HARD DRINK. 

THEN JOIN ME ON THE FRONT PORCH. 

IT'S SUCH A DELIGHT, 

TO WATCH THE YOUNG ONES IN THEIR HASTE, 

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE MEANING OF LIFE. 

YOU'LL GIGGLE AT THEIR MISGUIDED SPEECHES, 

BASED ON EMOTION MORE THAN REASON. 

ON TOPICS THEY FEEL ARE VITALLY IMPORTANT 

FOR THE GOOD OF MANKIND. 

WHEN THEY TELL YOU, 

“OLD MAN YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND!” 

JUST SMILE, AND LET THEM HAVE THEIR MOMENT. 

IT WON'T BE LONG, 

BEFORE THEY COME TO US, STILL SITTING ON THE PORCH. 

ASKING US, “WHAT'S THE POINT OF LIFE?” 

WE'LL HAND THEM A BEER, AND OFFER THEM A CHAIR. 

THEN WE'LL LET THEM IN ON THE SECRETE. 

THE BEST PART OF THEIR LIFE, 

HAS JUST BEGUN.
