274 : 1/9/99 : I Am Neither Young Nor Wise

I am neither young nor wise
And there’s a riddle true
I guess it comes as no surprise
the foolish things I do
It seems that everyone must come
to this strange midway mark
the unyoung body suffers from
the unwise deeds that bark
And howl out from the unwise mind
Obeyed despite my brain
That whispers that I’ll pay in kind
And take my dose of pain
