I can only hope my inevitable retirement home experience is somewhat similar to this.

Here are some poems.

I.

Ravages of time
Draining the blood, drying the flesh
Leaves dusty old bones

II.

Barren catacombs
Patter of fading heartbeats
Lifeless as a tomb

III.

Time takes selfishly
Greedily suckles life’s teat
Drinks until it’s dry

IV.

Once, I was the king.
But now, I ain’t but two things …
And Jack has left town.
