Fear

I know you’re frightened of my old age
I know that you’ve read about memory loss
And physical deterioration with inelegant diseases.
I know I’m in that category. I’m going that way.
And you’re telling me to eat righteously,
Take exercise like an athlete looking to triumph
I’m doing it for you, one more favour from me to you
Saving embarrassment when I don’t know you.

(Chris)
