The Aging Epidemic

Stick out your tongue;

you’ve got a bad case of growing up.

The doctor said it wouldn’t be lethal,

but it’d be chronic.

Your childhood will be no more,

but instead will come back in flashes of nostalgia

in the midst of your pedantic new lifestyle.

    good! And so true – now that I’m a mother, and look back on my own youth, I do focus on the happy memories. I hope my kids do as well once they’re pedantic grownups, and won’t remember as much my yelling and nagging.
