Sooner or later Time
Will come knocking
With untimely reminders
Of what should or might have been
I caution you not to Look him in the eye !
Or offer respect to His proposal or critique
Should it alter your course
Or disturb the comforts of age
He has many clients who listen all too intently
Your considered response might be “Say What?’
He hates repeating himself (though He often does)
He will then imagine your loss of hearing (most absurd)
But give him, at least , one small victory
BEFORE YOU SHUT THE DOOR………..
