Juke Box

Fallen Arches

Despite the fallen arches

The gout confirmed today


The excess of fat and starches

That hobble fluent play


The failing eyes that blind us

The cartilages worn


The broken noses snoring (wife’s roaring!)

Insomniac til dawn


Rheumatic when it’s raining

Arthritic when it’s fine


Prostate way past its prime

Haemorrhoids completing


This list of slow decay

Still blither than the larks is


We plays on Saturday
