100 words for grown-ups #161

100 words of priceless doggerel

When I was sixty-nine, it was a very good year

for enjoying life, Alfie our puppy and Lynne my wife

I finally got to go to Cadiz; what an ancient mysterious city it is.

I revelled in a hot sunny summer at home

up on the hills with Alfie,

along endless lanes on my bike I did roam.

I’ve written lots of stories, fact and fiction

happy to say writing’s become an addiction.

When I look back on being sixty-nine,

I can say I had a very good time.

PS I feel so alive because I’m still only… thirty-five
