Up and Left


My second childhood has up and left

But it’s really not absurd

That since it’s gone I’m not bereft

Because I’m in my third


Testosterone has left me too

Don’t know why it departed

Where it is, I have no clue

It left me heavy hearted


So I don’t despair, not one bit

 When it comes to push and shove

You’ll find that I amtotally fit

‘Cause I still know how to love

Dearest Stan,

As always you continue to write geat prose.
I am glad you still know how to love

Something about differentiating between love and... umm... let's just say itólust, comes to mind. The absence of testosterone may open the door for a kinder, gentler love.

Kudos, once again, to Don.

Excellent, Stan. Excellent.
I confess, I am no stranger to the third childhood to which this poem attends with such good humour. All of us as we age may experience certain energies rather in decline, shall we say. Yet let us not despair indeed, finding solace in so many of life's bounties, not least love and laughter.
Chortleth, and applaudeth heartily.
