do it

at an age of eighty and


there are not even a few

ways open

to earn a decent living

for somebody

who has the arts at his


not that he’d not be willing

to lend a hand or a few hours

of his time

to even help with menial work/

any work/ any time


most members of the society

in general

look down upon the aged

despite in good condition

and health

the only weapon the artist

or poet wields

is the sword of his brush

or the choice of his

written words. do it.

so be it. artist paint!

poet write.

do it.ti od
