When taking out the trash is the highlight of your day and appearances must be upheld.




Aged Logistics

 

 

Today begins in morning calm

From restful sleep to aching rise

In disjointed gait I move along

My daily ablutions to reprise

 

Over time my elusive librium 

Becomes quivering  equi slowly

In a staccato riff of tedium

joints and muscles reach harmony

 

Next the chore of getting dressed

Underthings  best installed

While sitting on a stool assessed

To prevent an unpredicted fall

 

Socks and pants while sitting there

A shirt within a long stretched grasp

Complete the trousseau matched with care

My choice mute moot a bit perhaps 

 

And now the shoes for heavens sake

To bend and tie will never do

Loafers now must undertake

A horn and handle ease my throws

 

Now suitably adorned I’m off

To  take the trash to nearby road

And to my neighbours I now scoff

As their bathrobed hides exit their abodes
