Wallflowers

Assimilated comfortability,
Can be yours routinely.
With dependable reliability,
With those alike who seek it.

But none of that is on this tray...
As an activity,
Offered today.

Those who wish to play,
Old geezers peeking easily out of windows...
Determined to dose,
Will not find too many...
Excitedly curling up their toes,
Thrilled.
Snap out of it!

Wallflowers hanging up their lives to age,
Are times that have rapidly moved away.
Get up, get with it and get active...
If you don't want to be among,
Those dismissed as if they haven't lived.
