GERIATRICíS


Geriatricís, of which I am one,
Clutter up neighborhoods
From sunrise to setting sun.

We toddle down the street
As though without a care.
We cross against the light
On our motorized wheelchair.

In markets, where we shop
On days we get discounts,
Restrooms are kept busy
Beyond the usual amounts.

A slam from behind
For walking too slow
Is common from cane-wielders
Who arenít certain where they want to go.

McDonald's comes alive
With walkers and canes.
The loud voices deafen
Those whose hearing remains.

Come nap-time, mid morning,
When geriatrics lose their steam,
Some stop in mid-sentence,
Close their eyes and dream.

I do sometimes wonder
What purpose we serve
Beyond irritating youngsters,
Who we totally unnerve.
