The privileges I shall enjoy when I finally reach my prime,
Will include behaving as I choose just about any time.
I'll throw rocks at puppy dogs, and chase cats when I please,
Everyone will let me do it, when I'm 93.

When I go out with my grand kids, I'll sit wherever I want,
I'll order three, no, four desserts from fancy restaurants.
I'll not pee in my Depends, I'll use the nearest tree,
Everyone will let me do it, when I'm 93.

I'll ogle all the frisky girls and grin at them with gums,
I'll get sponge baths from pretty nurses anytime I want.
I'll pinch their bottoms, say I got ‘em, and they'll not scold me,
Everyone will let me do it, when I'm 93.

I'll go for long and aimless walks in the middle of the night,
I'll get rides home in police cars, but that will be alright.
Because they'll know I've not far to go, and that's OK with me,
Everyone will let me do it, when I'm 93.

I'll have young nurses say, "Good night," and kiss on my forehead,
I'll say I am scared of the dark, would they tuck me in my bed?
If they do this I'll steal a kiss, and cackle out in glee,
Everyone will let me do it, when I'm 93.

I'll the turn the TV up real loud when commercials are being run,
And then pretend I can't hear a sound just to have some fun.
I'll surf  the shows in slow mo, and control the TV screen,
Everyone will let me do it, when I'm 93.

In a few more years I'll be even worse and drive everybody mad,
I'll be a real hellion, having more fun than I've ever had.
I'll be a poster child of Gramps-gone-wild, and use all of my tricks,
Just like our Balladeer does now, but when I'm 96.

lil Rainbow Girl - it is so nice to see your post - I hope you are doing well - you never responded to my last email - but I know you are going through a lot

Thanks to you all for your very kind comments - I can't wait for Balladeer to read that last line - he is such a scamp - lol

Sharon and Dovey - thank you for your comments - as you've seen by now, poor ol' 'Deer has responded with mean comments and even a poem about my future abode - he is such a scalawag!
