Funny Poems – My Get Up And Go

My Get Up  And Go

How do I know that my youth is spent?

Well, my get up and go is buckled and bent..

I laugh to myself and think what I’ve seen

  If only you saw where my get up has been.

Hearing Aides, glasses, pills down my throat.

water in a glass, where my false teeth float.

  As I’m fall to sleep I say to myself

what else is left, to put on the shelf?

When I was young I had nothing on loan,

My ears, my eyes and teeth were my own.

No pills to take, to keep my heart ticking,

just a fast pair of legs, for running and kicking.

Each day that I wake and know I’m ahead.

take a deep breath and know I’m not dead.
