Decade 2010

In a matter of hours I step into
my octogenarina decade.
You bet your sweet arse,
1931 to 2010 is a long time.
Much longer than I expected,
or deserve.
However, the French have an apt
saying in the circumstances.
'C'est la vie'

Thank you for the comment and best wishes sweetheart, love, Jez
And you know something, sweetheart, you don't look a day over sixty! It was certainly touch and go there for a while mid 2007, but something tells me that your octogenarian decade will flow smoothly. Good to read a new poem from your crusty old pen - tightly crafted and delivered with your usual sharpness and flair. Happy Birthday for tomorrow (January 4) . Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
