Now I’m Sixty-Four

Now that I’m older losing my brain
Many years from when?
Will you still be sending me a box of cheese?
Birthday greetings? Bottle of fleas?
When I fall asleep at quarter to ten
Will you let me snore?
Will you still need me?
Will you still feed me?
Now I’m sixty-four.

Happy Birthday, Christopher Newton
from the Pondering Pig

  1. Wow, Chris – This is a milestone. Even better than the 33 1/3 birthday or the 45 birthday. I’ve great expectations for the 78 birthday. See a pattern here? A very happy birthday to you and many many more to come. Carrie
