Old Age Poems




**


There are lots of Old Age Poems and Sayings around possibly because a sense of humor is needed at this stage of our lives .

Most likely we've developed one by then and lost that arrogance of youth and grown more accepting of the way we are.

Laughter makes the world go round so get on the roundabout and enjoy!

These are free for you to use for non commercial purposes.

KEEP TAKING THE VITAMINS!!


Old age does not hang on the coat tails of the middle
It has an opportunity all of it's own:
One that is no less than youth itself
And in another proud dress it's shown.
Things might not work as well as they did
So extra needs are to be rightly fed;
For us to be full of enthusiasm and joy
Or otherwise all we'll have is sitting in bed!
So never surrender to that chair syndrome
The one that rocks you back and forth;
Keep a positive state of mind all times
Bring back what was going south to the north.
Maggie-May

All my secrets are very safe
My friends can't remember them;
I've told them many things
From I can't remember when.

Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
These are a few of my favourite things.
Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of my favourite things.
When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favourite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.
Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favourite things...
Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin',
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
When we remember our favourite things.
When the joints ache, When the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I've had,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Old Age Tension
Sometimes it’s nice being old
It isn’t the mess you’ve been told
You can turn on the telly
Eat custard and jelly
And stop in the house when it gets cold
You can go to the coast for your tea
And sit there and look at the sea
And think of that failure
You had in Australia
With that sailor when you were 23.
You can try on a big daft hat
Or fiddle about with your cat
Or stand on your head before going to bed
But we wont say a lot about that!
You can pretend to do what your told
When people are starting to scold
But all the time it’s yourself that you please
‘Til they want to replace your hips and your knees.
Ann Dryden

I don't feel old. I don't feel anything until noon.

Then it's time for my nap.

Sometimes, when I look at my children, I say to myself,

My Dear Wife,
You will surely understand that I have certain needs that
you, being 54 years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very
happy with you and I value you as a good wife. Therefore,
after reading this letter, I hope that you will not
wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the
evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort
Inn Hotel. Please don't be upset----I shall be home
before midnight.
When the man came home late that night, he found the
following letter on the dining room table:


My Dear Husband,
I received your letter and thank you for your honesty
about my being 54 years old. I would like to take this
opportunity to remind you that you are also 54 years old.
As you know, I am a math teacher at our local college.
I would like to inform you that while you read this,
I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my students,
who is also the assistant tennis coach. He is young,
virile, and like your secretary, is 18 years old.
As a successful businessman who has an excellent knowledge
of math, you will understand that we are in the same
situation, although with one small difference - 18 goes
into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18.
Therefore, I will not be home until sometime tomorrow.

The graveside service just barely finished, when there was
massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of

"Well, she's there."

I proudly replied, "Only you, Darling.

With all the others

OLD FART


A fart is a pleasant thing,
It gives the belly ease,
It warms the bed in winter,
And suffocates the fleas.
A fart can be quiet,
A fart can be loud,
Some leave a powerful,
Poisonous cloud

A fart can be short,
Or a fart can be long,
Some farts have been known
To sound like a song......
A fart can create
A most curious medley,
A fart can be harmless,
Or silent, and deadly.
A fart might not smell,
While others are vile,
A fart may pass quickly,
Or linger a while......
A fart can occur
In a number of places,
And leave everyone there,
With strange looks on their faces.
From wide-open prairie,
To small elevators,
A fart will find all of
Us sooner or later.
But farts are all bad,
Is simply not true-
We must never forget.......
Sweet old farts like you!
