LIFE by Christopher Matthew

When I was One,

The War had begun.

When I was Ten

It was wartime again.

When I was Twenty

I thought I knew plenty.

When I was Thirty

I liked to be flirty.

When I was Forty

I got rather sporty.

When I was Fifty

I turned very thrifty.

But now that I’m Sixty, I’ve got to confess

That more often than not, I couldn’t care less.
