This blog post on http://www.thedrabble.wordpress.com is a reflection of the reality of life. The young become old and repeat the words of the previous generations.
“Do it, do it now,” said the old, “before it’s too late.”
“There’s time,” said I, “there’s time yet.”
“No,” said the old, “do it now, now before it’s too late.”
“Yes, yes” said I,
Before it’s too late.
I had time, lots of time, so I thought,
And I did do some, but not all.
And the some was good. But some I did not do.
I did not say things I should have said,
And I did not do things I should have done,
And now it’s too late.
And now I am the old,
And I say, “Do it, do it now before it’s too late.”
