"Fighting Against Age"

I don't believe in acting one's age.
I will continue to hold my stomach in around women.

I refuse to cut off my hair.

I will not buy larger jeans, 
even if I have to lie down and hold my breath to zip them up.

I plan to get a face lift on my 90th birthday.

If my hands won't play the notes fast enough, 
I'll think of a slower trick to snow them under. 
I'll dazzle them with my footwork.

I'll keep wearing yellow glasses, and insisting they are for night driving.

I will not think old.

A pathetic attempt at youth? Maybe, but at least an attempt.

Old age will get a fight from me all the way.
