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.
