What Has My Life Become?

Oh, what has my life become?
I've recently been labeled old by some.
Heard it from some young punk
but that's just fine, I don't want no fuss
a man learns with age he must adjust.
A few years back that kid wouldn't know
i woulda struck him hard right between the eyes
and grin with content until he'd apologize.
Oh, that man I once knew has long left this body
Nowadays, I just look straight-ahead and smile
and laugh when relatives whisper of me being senile.
although my bones are brittle I feel my mind is sharp.
and continue to wonder what new things i might see
i hope to see Earth awhile longer, but i'll make no guarantee
life is unpredictable, for you'll soon know as well as me.
