Old Folk

Someone, long ago, said something to the effect that God made a mistake, wasting youth on the young. I now agree. For those who remember Mork from Ork, they were born old and died young. But, God don't make mistakes, but we sure do.
The other day (6-15) was, what I called 'Care for Old Folk' day, about reporting abuse. This is what I posted as a response:

Old Folk

By Arley Steinhour 061511

Treat Old folk with love

Treat Old folk with care

In a few short years

You too will be there

Look to the Old Folks

Rigored with wrinkle

Longing for Love-rain

So, give them a sprinkle

Care for the old folk

For them be Oak branch

They birthed and raised you

So you'd have a chance.

AMEN
