Fountain of Youth: A May-December Relationship

Some old men live
for fishing,
others for golf out 
on the green;
some adopt frugality,
hoard their riches
and act mean.

Some are plagued
with sickness,
living out the days
in doctor’s care;
some have long
since lost their teeth, 
their mind, and 
all their hair.

Many have lost the
joy for living,
and simply wait on
Heaven’s Gate;
never having known
true love, they
put it off ‘til it’s
too late.

 This old man found
the Fountain of Youth,
and a whole new
lease on life;
he’s full of spunk
and vitality,
with a mind sharp
as a knife.

He drives a vintage
hippie bus,
sports long hair in
a ponytail;
wears frayed jeans
and Jesus sandals,
and whatever looks
cool on sale.

You see,

He discovered a new
life partner,
who’s young and
cute as he can be;
who’s taught him
how to love again,
and how to set his
spirit free.

They play all day
in the sunshine,
at whatever they
feel best;
and play at making
love all night,
in their condo in
Key West.
