April A to Z blogging challenge Wisdom
‘Wisdom comes with age,’ it’s said,
But what age must I reach
Before perception fills my head
And thoughts precede my speech?
With every passing year I find
I’m child-like yet and silly,
While others educate their minds
I’m still just froth and frilly.
I should be wise by now, you see,
It’s showing in my teeth,
But though I may look ninety-three
I’m eighteen underneath.
