You are only old once--Dr. Suess

I love Dr. Suess and his whimsical sense of humor. I found the Cat in the Hat on Aging on the Internet and it is a take-off on Dr. Suess famous "Cat in the Hat".  Dr. Suess did a wonderful book on aging called, "You're only old once".  If you want the Youtube version of this book, go here, The parody below is very dark when it comes to aging. Dr. Suess actually took a lighter view of aging. His book, which I think we should all read, just to regain our sense of wonder ends with this thought. 

And you'll know

once your necktie's

back under your chin

and Norval has waved you

Godspeed with his fin,

you're in pretty good shape

 for the shape, you are in.

I cannot see
I cannot pee
I cannot chew
I cannot screw
Oh my god, what can I do?
My memory shrinks
My hearing stinks
No sense of smell
My mood is bad - can you tell?
My body's drooping
Have trouble pooping
The Golden Years
have come at last
The Golden Years
