Senior Citizen Concerns -- A fun little Whirligig poem
It has been rumored, our wise old mayor,
he is beyond all hope of repair
Unless his steps cease their naughty paths
He must close the road to the brothels
Never, ever go that way again
People have not forgotten his sins
Nor will they begin forgiving him
His health in question, sans protection
At his age passion messes his mind
So enter the clinic with hat in hand
No other senior will be seen there
This detour and adventure** must end
