Message:  'old age and retiral
the government kindly gives a pension
Poor Old Soul!,
is said but no attention
is paid to the withering man
till he finally dies
Long black hearses drag by
acknowledged at last
hats are raised women cry
so late, I wonder why?'

As someone fighting to see his sixties, and longer, I've long wondered at society's casual disregard of the elderly and their wise treasure trove of memories.
