DODDERING OLD FOOL

 

So now

I’m a doddering old fool—

whatever that is.

 

I’m the object 

of scorn and ridicule

from millennials and children alike

but the great thing is:

 

I’m older, slower,

have a hard time staying awake

but I’ve gotten wise enough

to not give a flying fuck

what you think about me.
