    Nettles

    Mid morning
    Coco pops done
    Beano comic read
    All systems go
    Shorts on. Sun shining
    Tracy still thinks Iím great.
    Top of the cherry. Lop sided grin
    Salt and vinegar crisps
    I played with myself
    Donít tell anybody
    Letís go for a walk that
    Takes all day
    Pick cowslips
    Drink warm orange squash.
    Never get old.
    Letís roll in nettles
    Until we die.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.

    And Waterloo porridge was the best of our food"

    I like the sonic landscape and the images you paint here. It has a lot of sensory depth, and it seems to capture the essence of "age is only a number." An acceptance of death while trying to maintain a youthful passion for life. Thanks

    Hmm; I've been mulling over existentialist concepts and expansion/extraction from the {self}.

    I detect curious, sexual mischief, lascivious, exploration of self. It seems naughty but so relatable. The evolution of taboo.

    I agree with MiltonSatyr on the 'youthful passion' with age only being a number.
